Core Values: Quality



Quality comes first. In the products we manufacture. In the processes and people we employ. And in the service and support we provide our customers. Our absolute commitment to quality underpins everything we do.

You'll see that quality in abundance at our New River Valley Plant, where we assemble and paint the cabs, fairings and accessories for all VN highway tractors and VHD vocational trucks. The facility is ISO 14001 environmentally certified and was one of the first heavy-truck assembly plants in North America to gain ISO 9001 certification.
Volvo excellence comes from advanced robotic technology in the cab and paint facilities, and from proven, consistent assembly processes. It comes from a commitment to a safe work environment that ensures superior quality in every vehicle that leaves the plant.

As an integrated manufacturer of engines, chassis and cabs, we control every step of the production process from concept to manufacture. This focus enhances quality in our products-and productivity for our customers-mile after mile.

Integrated manufacturing also means we have the ability to bring new technology and innovations to our customers very quickly. It means we can reengineer our transportation solutions whenever customer needs dictate.

Each Volvo truck is built to rigorous quality standards that apply to all facets of its construction. Our global manufacturing processes ensure that every truck is assembled correctly on the production line. And careful inspection of random trucks verifies their quality before they leave the plant.
