Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) has opened a new Competence Development Center in North China in partnership with local colleges and dealers to educate young people in technician training.

The center, in Zhengzhou, Henan Province, will provide technician training for young individuals seeking industry experience.

Thanks to rapid urbanization in China, the construction machinery industry is developing quickly – according to a five-year plan, the annual growth average for engineering machinery is projected to be more than 17 percent, while the annual output will be more than $900 billion (U.S.). Construction machinery will be a driving force of the Chinese equipment manufacturing industry and by opening the new Competence Development Center, Volvo aims to support the sustainable development of the Chinese construction machinery industry and to support the young local community in China.
