Volvo Trucks’ service capabilities in the Southwest region of the U.S. have grown with the addition of a new Bruckner’s Truck Sales facility in Albuquerque, N.M, said the company.
The 7.5-acre full-service dealership offers ample parking and 18 truck bays staffed by 16 technicians, two of which are Volvo master technicians. The new location also houses more than $1 million in parts inventory in the 13,000 square-foot parts warehouse.
“Tremendous dealer engagement and investments, like the new Bruckner’s Truck Sales facility in Albuquerque, contribute greatly to the overall Volvo ownership experience,” said Göran Nyberg, president of Volvo Trucks North American Sales & Marketing. “The strength of our dealer network is essential for supporting customers and plays a vital role in maximizing uptime through our Remote Diagnostics connected vehicle platform.”
Volvo Trucks dealers across North America have invested $370 million since 2010, including more than 50 new facilities or significant renovations and more than 25 planned or underway. The investments have resulted in a 50% increase in technicians, including more than a 150% increase in Volvo master technicians. Now, more than 25% of Volvo technicians are certified master technicians. Service bay capacity has increased 34%, while parts inventory has increased 37 percent, and the number of parts department employees has increased 68%.
