“This is our joint celebration because today we celebrate 20 years of successful business cooperation with you, our faithful partners and associates. All these years, we have tried to offer complete transportation solutions, from the sale of new and used trucks, through vehicle servicing, to Volvo factory financing,” said Vladimir Vuković, sales director at Volvo Trucks Serbia.

“During the past 20 years, the truck market in Serbia has grown, and along with it, we grew. Initially, our customers were welcomed in New Belgrade, in a modest facility, and in 2004 we expanded our network to the sales and service centre in Novi Sad, then in 2005 Čačak. After several successful years, in 2008, we built and opened a modern Volvo Truck and Bus Center in Novi Banovci, where we are still today,” said Milan Joksimović of Volvo Trucks Serbia.

The central part of the ceremony was opened by Dragana Krstić, General Manager of Volvo d.o.o. “Volvo’s story in the Serbian market started in the 90s when our partners marketed Volvo products. Of course, we have all learned a lot from them, and once again we are thankful for the first steps. Soon the market recognised the quality, reliability and comprehensiveness of our offer. Sales of our vehicles grew year after year, so Volvo Trucks Corporation in 1998 decided to open Volvo d.o.o., “said Mrs Krstić.

“With the expansion of the Volvo network, we have started a new chapter in our story. The Volvo teams were placed at strategic locations – in Novi Banovci, Novi Sad, Čačak and Niš, and the market recognised and accepted us as a reliable partner. In two decades of business, we have become one of the most important players in the market for heavy trucks in Serbia.” said Dragana Krstić.

“It is a great honour and a great pleasure to greet you in this, for all of us, a significant event,” said Roger Alm, senior vice president at Volvo Trucks Europe. “With great pride, today I can confirm that our mission has succeeded. Volvo Trucks is among the most popular in Serbia, especially among long-haul carriers, as well as in the construction segment, among the companies that are engaged in road construction and maintenance, and in the last few years, among the companies who are engaged in special transports,” said Mr Alm.

“Every visit to this part of our region has always meant something to me, and today, at this celebration, it is a unique and emotional moment,” said Robert Grozdanovski, vice president of Volvo Tucks for the Central and Eastern European market. “For the past 20 years, we delivered more than 5,000 trucks in Serbia and cooperated with more than 1,000 companies. We are very proud that in that period we became close partners, friends and even more – part of the Volvo family. Our goal is to develop cooperation in the future because we do not want to be just a supplier, but also a partner.” said Mr Grozdanovski.
