Relocation of Volvo Car UK HQ

Volvo Car UK has opened its new headquarters in Maidenhead, Berkshire.

After 26 years at its previous location in Marlow, Buckinghamshire, the decision to move was taken to ensure Volvo's office better reflected the same Scandinavian luxury as its cars.

Nick Connor, managing director of Volvo Car UK, said: "These are very exciting times for Volvo in the UK with the launch of brand new models like the V40 R-Design and V40 Cross Country, plus the V60 Hybrid in 2013. Both of these cars express modern Volvo values of design, technology and Scandinavian luxury.

"With this office move, the UK headquarters for Volvo now also shares that same ethos and provides the perfect platform on which to build a progressive, dynamic and above all, modern vision of Volvo for the future."

The new home, some seven miles from its previous base, spans three floors and includes offices, a staff restaurant and display space for its new cars in the reception area.

Earlier this year Citroen UK relocated from Slough to Coventry to share a headquarters with sister brand Peugeot GB in a bid to reduce costs.
