The partnership between Zahid Tractor and Volvo Trucks Corporation started in 1980 with a shared vision of providing superior quality vehicles and after-sales service to an ever-growing Saudi market. Since then, Zahid Tractor has been the exclusive distributor of Volvo trucks and buses in the Kingdom.
With a reputation for its reliability, quality and safety, Volvo trucks experienced vast and dynamic growth in Saudi Arabia that led to the strategic decision by both companies to form Arabian Vehicles and Trucks Industry (AVI) joint venture in 1998.
Volvo trucks are assembled at a state-of-the-art plant located in Jeddah with an annual production capacity of 3000 units. Safety remains a top priority, and Volvo-certified product auditors continuously monitor the assembly process.
A high percentage of the production assembly team is comprised of Saudi nationals. The company is known for offering extensive training through the Zahid Learning Center, including courses focusing on different disciplines of the business, values of Volvo, and the Code of Ethics of Zahid Group.
Zahid Tractor, established in 1967, is the flagship company of Zahid Group. Over the years, the company has evolved into three core business units – Construction Machinery, Commercial Vehicles and Rental – and is proud to represent some of the world’s leading brands such as Volvo, Renault, Sunwin, PM, Stetter, Caterpillar, JLG, Rammer, Svetruck and Terex. Today, Zahid Tractor serves a number of industries including construction and infrastructure, industrial, logistics and warehousing, agriculture, transportation, petroleum, mining, and quarry and aggregates.
