Volkswagen Trucks looking to expand internationally

Volkswagen Truck & us celebrates 25 years of its factory located in Resende, in the South Fluminense region. With an initial investment of US$ 250 million, the automaker has already increased fivefold the resources applied to the development of its operations, which have seen a qualitative leap since its installation in the city. Today, the brand offers a complete line of trucks and buses to the market, and celebrates the good acceptance of the e-Delivery, the first electric truck developed and produced in Brazil.  

“Over 25 years, our factory has become a reference with the unprecedented Modular Consortium and the e-Consortium, in addition to producing a series of vehicles that have become true transport icons. Today we occupy a factory complex covering 1 million square meters with 4,500 employees, conquering the Brazilian and international markets. The secret of our brand's success is based on a solid pillar: the customer always comes first”, says Roberto Cortes, president and CEO of Volkswagen Truck & Bus. After building its headquarters in 1996, VWCO created landmark product families such as the 2000 Series, the Constellation, two generations of Delivery and the Meteor, as well as the first rear-engine VW bus chassis and the introduction of the MAN brand in the parents. Also part of these evolutions are the Euro 3 and 5 lines, 

Today, the assembler has its line for the transport of cargo, ranging from 3.5 to 125 tons of total gross weight trucks. VWCO has also developed a complete line for passenger transport, with Volksbus chassis for the rural, urban, charter, road and school bus markets. Added to this are recent investments in electric mobility. achievements

The factory celebrates its twenty-fifth anniversary in the same year that the Volkswagen Truck & Bus brand celebrates its 40th anniversary. In February 1981, Brazil and the world got to know the hitherto unprecedented Volkswagen Truck, a brand that has been making history and leading the market with its custom-made trucks and buses. Created together with the Resende plant, the Modular Consortium is VWCO's production model in which the commercial vehicle manufacturer delegates assembly responsibility at its plant to eight suppliers there called partners. This innovation helped the automaker to focus on the development and quality control of its products. The Consortium's arrival in Resende, 25 years ago, laid the foundations for the Sul Fluminense automotive hub, today one of the largest in Brazil.

VW Truck & Bus also took a big step towards making electric mobility viable for the production of the first Brazilian electric trucks with the creation of the unprecedented e-Consórcio, and in July it officially started selling the first 100% electric truck, the new VW e-Delivery. In addition to the development of products with its Engineering also located in Resende, the company takes care of quality tests that include safety and compliance with the Volkswagen Group's global standards. A network of dealers and importers with around 350 points of sale spread over two continents distributes the products made in Resende.
