Volvo VISTA 2011 Finalists Announced

This year’s VISTA competition – Volvo Trucks’ and Volvo Buses’ worldwide contest and training programme for mechanics and service personnel, has finally reached its final stage, with thirty contenders to travel to Gothenburg, Sweden for the world final on June 28.

The competition originally started with more than 13,700 technicians and workshop personnel from all over the world. This marks the the first world final to include representatives from North America, and thus the first world final to reach every continent on the globe.

"Almost 40 percent of our workforce is in aftermarket services, and VISTA is a great way to ensure that we have the right competence for the key people who we trust to take care of our customers,"
says Staffan Jufors, CEO for Volvo Trucks. "It is also a great way of acknowledging the vital role they play in our total product offer".

"The level of skill and expertise exhibited at each semi final has shown that we are successfully developing a highly competent work force in every market we operate in,"
says Bengt Persson, Vice President of Quality and Technical Support at Volvo Trucks. "It is very reassuring to know that all our customers, wherever in the world they may be, are getting the same high standard in customer service."
