A fresh coat of paint

  • 14-Aug-2008 09:41 EDT

Volvo CE is investing SEK 341 million in a new paint shop in the company’s articulated hauler plant in Braås, Sweden. This investment will lead to an increase in capacity in the plant, a reduced impact on the environment, and added improvement in quality. The investment in the new paint shop, which will be completed in 2010, will increase capacity by approximately 55% compared with the existing one. This will also result in a number of improvements with respect to the environment, such as a reduction of some 75% in emissions of volatile organic compounds which can be attributed to a switch from solvent-borne paints to water-borne ones.
