As a result of significant Volvo lubricants sales in October 2008 Russia has gained a strong second position among a big number of countries from VCE International region.

            The working programme started with a presentation of VCE division in Turkey - the Volvo Otomotiv Türk Ltd.Şti. company, visiting one of the oldest VCE Service Centers in Istanbul and Parts Distribution Center.

            The main objective of the event however was to strengthen the knowledge about the Volvo Lubricants.  During the product training session questions on developing and improving of the Volvo Lubricants, their characteristics and advantages of their use for Volvo Construction Equipment machines were covered.

  Finally, a tour to one of the most modern refinary plants in the world in the outskirts of Istanbul Seviburnu became the key point on the programme. The participants had a possibility to see processes of blending, filling, quality control and distribution of Volvo Lubricants.
