Volvo CE plans to eventually transition the production of skid steer loaders from its Pederneiras facility in Brazil to JCB’s Savannah, GA, facility. Shown is the Volvo MC70B skid steer loader with steel tracks.

JCB and Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) have entered into a framework agreement to cooperate on the engineering and manufacturing of skid-steer and compact tracked loaders for distribution under their respective brands and through their respective global dealer networks. The first mono boom Volvo-branded machines are expected to be in production at JCB’s Savannah, GA, facility by the end of 2010. Volvo CE plans to then transition skid-steer loader models over time from its Pederneiras facility in Brazil.
