Volvo Group Southern Africa, in partnership with Titanium Motors Limited, has opened a new dealer facility in Zambia’s capital, Lusaka.
The dealership offers complete sales, parts and service for Volvo Trucks and UD Trucks customers operating in the region.
The US$10 million investment by Titanium Motors Limited signals the importance of Zambia as a regional transport hub. It also underscores the company’s belief in the future success of Volvo Trucks and UD Trucks brands in the country.
“Zambia is a key African market for Volvo Group. Apart from its very central location in southern Africa, it also has exciting potential as a developing market with a growing economy and emerging infrastructure,” said Torbjörn Christensson, President of Volvo Group Southern Africa.
The Managing Director of UD Trucks Southern Africa, Gert Swanepoel, said that the company is constantly looking to develop and strengthen their footprint across the region.
“This partnership not only provides world-class and sustainable support to our customers in Zambia, but also to fleet owners who run cross-border operations along the trade corridors of the southern African region.”
The 7 500m² dealership boasts a one-of-a-kind showroom, as well as a training facility to further develop the skills of staff and local fleet owners.
It also has six work bays, trained and accredited technicians, mobile service units and a parts warehouse, as well as dedicated sales teams for each of the brands.
