Volvo Penta Oceania is relocating its Australian head office to new premises in Brisbane.

The company is already located in Brisbane, but is shifting its operation to 29 Industrial Avenue, Wacol, in a move it said places it close to its other business areas, enabling significant cost savings and synergies for back office support.

Volvo Penta Oceania will open the doors to its new headquarters on August 1. The new site is said to be similar to the current layout at Murarrie, with an office-warehouse and training premises.

In conjunction with the relocation, Volvo Penta said there is a restructuring of the Oceania dealer network being implemented to strengthen the company’s complete service offering.

The dealer network, it said, will be organised according to the same model that was recently implemented in the European markets, whereby Volvo Penta has appointed a number of Volvo Penta Centres, which in turn, assume responsibility for developing and operating service and support through a number of service dealers.

In Oceania, the company said nine Volvo Penta Centres have been appointed, which are responsible for a total of 90 authorised Volvo Penta service dealers.

"Within the framework of this structure, Volvo Penta Centres will be able to conduct work to ensure a continued strong presence for Volvo Penta in Oceania and effective service for builders, boat dealers and end customers," said the company in a press release.
