TRULY GLOBAL, PROUDLY SCANDINAVIAN
Our core strength comes from our people.
The first Volvo rolled off the production line in Gothenburg way back in 1927 and since then, we’ve gone from strength to strength, creating world-changing innovations along the way.
We’re also a global brand with manufacturing in Sweden, Belgium and China.
Volvo Car Group produces a premium range of cars that includes sedans, wagons, sportswagons, cross country cars and SUVs.
Volvo Car Group (Volvo Cars) is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding (Geely Holding) of China.
Volvo Cars and AB Volvo
Since 1999 Volvo Car Corporation has no longer been part of AB Volvo, but Volvo Cars and AB Volvo still share the same brand name. A new jointly owned company, Volvo Trademark Holding AB, was established in 1999 to deal with brand matters for both companies.
Volvo Cars is owned by Zhejiang Geely Holding of China. AB Volvo is a publicly-held company headquartered in Gothenburg, Sweden, with shares listed on OMX Nordic Exchange in Stockholm.
Volvo Cars and AB Volvo remain separate entities but cooperate in research and development, and brand-related investments such as Volvo Ocean Race.
Our comprehensive Code of Conduct, which is based on existing policies, is our way of ensuring that we conduct business in an ethical and compliant way. The Code applies to everyone within Volvo Cars, as well as consultants and agency personnel working under the direction of Volvo Cars. We also expect that all of our business contacts and commercial partners should be governed by the same or similar principles stipulated in the Code of Conduct. It is also an important part of our commitment to Sustainability.
