Volvo CE Buying CeDe

Volvo Construction Equipment is acquiring special application company CeDe Group for an undisclosed sum. CeDe Group is based in Malmo, Sweden, and the deal – which is expected to come into force by mid-March – will include its intellectual property, operations, other assets and staff of approximately 45 full-time employees.

CeDe Group is a low-volume adaptor of construction and mining machinery for special applications. As the annual volumes produced are relatively low, the deal will have no material effect on the income or financial position of Volvo CE.

Working for several leading OEMs, including Volvo CE and its dealers, adaptations include developing new bodies for haulers (e.g. fuel, water, waste.), rail conversions for wheeled excavators, as well as conversions for underground mining applications etc. The company was formed in 2000 and can trace its roots back to Volvo’s original excavator business, Åkerman.

Volvo CE said it add additional resources to CeDe allow it to expand its market reach and customer bases, becoming a European leader in this specialized field. A strenghtened partner will also support Volvo CE’s objectives of expanding its product offering into new segments and applications, as well as providing a partner who can deliver low volume prototypes and production runs said Volvo CE The company will continue to provide and expand its engineering services to non-Volvo CE customers.

“This acquisition makes sense on a number of strategic levels,” said Volvo CE President Melker Jernberg. “CeDe has already proven that it has a depth of engineering talent in adapting our machines for specialized applications. This closer relationship will allow Volvo CE to grow our product offerings while at the same time boosting CeDe’s ability to expand into new markets and segments, both with Volvo CE and its other OEM customers.”

CeDe Group’s Chief Executive Krister Johnsson said:“We are extremely pleased to be joining the Volvo CE family of companies. With our already long and good relationship with Volvo CE and deep understanding of its products, we are excited at the opportunities to develop our services and expand our reach into new markets.”
