Volvo CE at BudTech 2008 - 2008 : Volvo Construction Equipment Ukraine

Volvo CE at BudTech 2008

Volvo Construction Equipment took the participation in the BudTech 2008, a largest exhibition of construction machinery in Ukraine. During the event Volvo demonstrated its recently introduced road machinery line together with other construction equipment in its range.

Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) was one of the largest exhibitors this year occupying about 510 m2 of open space. The exposition united the whole marketing channel of the company in Ukraine: Volvo Ukraine together with three regional dealers: ETS, Voltech and Yuzhtekhservis.

Traditional annual event took place on 1-4th October 2008 in Kyiv and was the largest construction machinery exhibition ever in Ukraine. And because of growing size, this year the location of the show was moved from the straitened facilities at the National Expo Centre to the outskirts of Kyiv. Thus all participants were given the possibility to display more products than ever before.

A large-size Volvo's Articulated Hauler A35E was one of the show-stopper on the exhibition, attracting the customers from the road-building and extraction segments. The most interested focus was the easiness and simplicity of service and maintenance, as well as the off-road capabilities of the hauler.

The road machinery line was presented by the crawler paver ABG7820 and wheeled paver ABG6870. The line was supplemented by the motor grader G930. This group of machines was of primary interest of road-building contractors who estimate a significant increase of road construction between the cities that will be the host of Euro 2012 championship.

The compact range was presented by the backhoe loader BL71 equipped with extendible dipper and front multipurpose bucket. Additionally, the customers from public facilities and residential building were interested in wheeled excavator EW160C, a machine that has a lot of advantages in a restricted urban area.

The latest generation L120F wheel loader was of common interest for almost every customer, as well as EC210B crawler excavator. Both machines are middle-sized that makes them very common on many construction objects.

Among the hard products, Volvo CE presented the set of its soft solutions: financing solutions, service agreements and full after market support including Volvo oils and lubricants, tooth systems and genuine parts.
