Are Volvo and JCB Skid Steers the same?
In 2010, Volvo and JCB entered into a joint venture. The companies agreed to collaborate on the design, construction, and marketing of both skid steer and tracked loaders, to be sold world-wide under both brands. At the time of the agreement, Volvo produced skid steer loaders for the North and South American trade in a plant located in Pederneiras, Brazil. JCB equipment was produced in the firm’s plant in Savannah, Georgia. The agreement called for Volvo to shift production from its Brazilian plant to the JCB plant in Georgia.
