Work begins on Volvo dealer training centre in Daventry

Work has started on the £4.3 million Volvo Car UK training and development centre in Daventry, set to open in the summer.

It will replace the existing training facility, which has been delivering technical, commercial and management training to Volvo dealer employees since 1980.

The new facility will feature remote video and web-based technologies.

It is being built by Nottingham-based construction company J. Tomlinson.

David Baddeley, Volvo Car UK’s operations director, said: “This is a significant show of commitment from Volvo in its Daventry operations.

“Our new facility will provide the thousands of Volvo dealer employees across the country with the best possible environment to enhance their knowledge for years to come.”

On completion, the site – which currently employs 32 people – will be purchased by Daventry District Council and leased back to Volvo Car UK.
