After 40 years in the Toronto suburb of North York, Volvo Cars of Canada headquarters has moved to mew premises in neighbouring Richmond Hill.
The new facility was custom built to showcase Volvo's global Next Face program, which is being implemented in showrooms around the world. Next face was developed to create a singular visual identity that expresses Volvo's Scandinavian heritage and emphasizes its position as a premium automotive brand.
The 700 square-metre (7,500 square-foot) facility is said to integrate modern technology into offices and boardrooms along with a state-of-the-art training facility for technical specialists.
"We are excited to begin the next chapter in Volvo Canada's history," says Marc Engelen, president & CEO, Volvo Cars of Canada Corp., "Our new workspace in Richmond Hill not only represents our global brand identity, but it will also accommodate our future growth plans."
"We are happy that Volvo Canada has chosen Richmond Hill to locate their Head Office and wish them great success in their new home," said Mayor Richmond Hill mayor, Dave Barrow, who was on hand to officially welcome Engelen and Volvo to the region.
