Coor expands collaboration with Volvo Buses

Volvo Bus Corporation has signed a five-year agreement with Coor Service Management. The agreement means that Coor will deliver and develop production and property related services to the Volvo Buses factory in Borås.

The five-year agreement is worth in the region of SEK 100 million, and is for Volvo Bus Corporation's chassis production unit in Viared, outside Borås in south-west Sweden.
