Voith Industrial Services Shanghai Co., Ltd. commenced a new project for 9 months with Volvo engine plant in Zhangjiakou, China. Voith is offering the equipment installation service for 73 sets of equipment in the cylinder block line and 29 sets of equipment in the cylinder head line at Volvo. This includes ground marking and drilling, unloading and unpacking service, equipment relocation, positioning service, levelling and main part of equipment lifting support during the assembly phase.
The collaboration between Volvo Cars China and Voith Industrial Services started in August 2012 in the Chengdu plant with technical facility management services. Thanks to their comprehensive know-how, technical experience, innovative solutions, and sustainable high quality of services, the industrial service provider won the trust of Volvo after the 18 months test period, which paved the way for long-term collaboration. In October 2014, Voith became a supplier for Volvo Daqing plant to provide operation of central station and maintenance services.
At the Volvo Cars China supplier conference in 2014 Voith has been awarded with the Volvo Quality Excellence Award – this means great encouragement to Voith and all the staff on site.
The team of Voith Industrial Services is delighted about the new contract which allows them to further consolidate their market position in China and expand their customer base.
Volvo Cars China has currently two vehicle manufacturing bases in Daqing and Chengdu and one engine manufacturing base in Zhangjiakou. The three Volvo factories in China strictly follow the Volvo Group’s standard in global sourcing, quality control, research and development system and management to provide high quality products which are comparable to the European ones.
