1950 – Volvo acquires BM

The demand for farm tractors and construction equipment of all kinds increased after WW II.

Through the cooperation with BM, which began in the 1940's, Volvo came to appreciate the quality of BM products and the company itself. Volvo hence acquired Bolinder-Munktell in 1950.
