Volvo Penta is starting wholly owned operations in Poland through the acquisition of its independent importer, Marco Motors.
Volvo Penta has had operations in Poland for nearly 50 years, with sales of marine as well as industrial engines. Since 1990 Volvo Penta has been represented by the independent importer Marco Motors, which has successively strengthened Volvo Penta’s position in Poland, particularly as a result of the build-out of a large service and dealer network.
Many of the world’s largest boat builders have started production of boats in Poland in recent years, partly for export and to meet domestic demand. This places new requirements on Volvo Penta’s presence in the country.
Consequently, Volvo Penta is acquiring Marco Motors and establishing the wholly owned company Volvo Penta Polska sp. z o.o., with head office in Szczecin (Stettin) in northwest Poland.
“Poland will become an increasingly larger market for marine and industrial engines.
We are creating new conditions for strengthened relations with our customers and consequently continued future growth, not only in Poland but in the whole region,” says Volvo Penta’s President Göran Gummeson.
