Volvo Trucks Delivers 1500th Unit to Nijhof-Wassink
"One of the main pillars of Nijhof-Wassink is the company's culture, which is characterised by great team spirit. We are convinced that our employees make the difference and account for our quality. Volvo fits well into this culture, because quality has a high priority for Volvo," says Freddy Nijhof, Director of Nijhof-Wassink.
Like all the other Volvo trucks in the company the landmark 1500th vehicle truck is equipped with various safety features since, in addition to quality, safety plays an important role at Nijhof-Wassink. "We can be sure that our people are safe in the Volvo and we feel this is very important," explains Freddy Nijhof.
Nijhof-Wassink has specialised in bulk transport by road, rail and water since 1967 and has branches in the Netherlands, Germany, Poland and Hungary. The company focuses flexibility, safety, quality and reliability for the transport and storage of dry loose bulk products and liquids.
The business activities expanded rapidly and in 1968 they acquired the sub-dealership of Volvo Trucks, and this was soon followed by the main agency in 1970. The garage activities were run as a separate operation under the name Nijwa BV. On 1 July 2006, Nijwa took over Viking Trucks, the Northern Volvo truck dealer with branches in Beilen, Veenoord, Hoogeveen, Groningen and Veendam.
