We contribute to the extraction of some of the world’s most important raw materials. Volvo Group’s vehicles can be found at the bottom of mines and in the middle of forests. Our industrial equipment and trucks are used daily to mine iron ore, clear forests, transport lumber or haul many tonnes of stone and rock. Our industrial engines power vital irrigation installations at agricultural sites all over the world, so that farmers can grow their crops.

We help our customers with financing and see to it that no machines remain at a standstill – no matter where in the world they operate.

Trucks off road

Hauling lumber from forests, iron ore from mines or large boulders from quarries requires powerful trucks. Several of our truck models have been developed specifically for industrial work and mining. Volvo FMX, Renault C and Renault K, Mack Granite and Mack TerraPro and Quester CWE are a few examples.

Excavators, wheel loaders, articulated and rigid dump trucks. These are just a few examples of the broad range of construction equipment offered by Volvo Group. Many of these machines are built to handle tough and heavy mining work. Others are designed to navigate dense forests or dust-laden quarries.

Our three brands, Volvo, Terex Trucks and SDLG, can be found in markets worldwide.
