Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) and SDLG are further deepening their corporate cooperation. From December 2020, excavators weighing 15 tonnes or more that are made for the Chinese market, will now bear the Volvo CE brand. These machines will also feature the latest Volvo CE technology.

With Volvo CE and SDLG selling their separate products in China, this is a marked change from the present situation. However, the upcoming introduction of the China IV emission standards are broadly similar to the US Tier 4 Final and European Stage IV standards. Hence, the likely development of China IV emission standards is going to reflect on the excavators.

Since Volvo CE acquired 70 per cent of SDLG in 2007, net sales have grown from approximately SEK 3 billion to SEK 17 billion with good profitability. SDLG has a strong market position in wheel loaders and has successfully entered the excavator market with support from Volvo CE.

“Bringing our larger excavator businesses in China together will maximise our ability to serve customers in China,” said Melker Jernberg, President of Volvo CE. “SDLG has been a great success since we began our cooperation in 2007. With sales of both brands growing and our cooperation getting ever closer over the years, this is a natural next step for us.”
