Volvo Truck and Bus Limited and Nissan Motors GB have agreed on the conditions to start the distribution of two of Nissan's Light Commercial Vehicles through its wholly-owned dealers.

Volvo Truck and Bus Centres Scotland, North, East Anglia, London and Wales and West plan to have nine dealerpoints involved in the sales and aftermarket support for the Nissan Interstar Van and the Nissan Cabstar Light Truck.

These Volvo dealerpoints will be part of the revised Nissan Commercial Vehicle dealer network and their expertise in heavy truck support will be directed towards users of the Nissan product.

It is intended to develop the number of Volvo dealers selling and supporting Nissan over the next 12 to 18 months.

Markku Olkinuora, Managing Director of Volvo Truck and Bus Limited said "This agreement will further strengthen our business as we will be able to offer our existing customers a broader range of product and also to bring new customers into the Volvo dealer network. The new Nissan products will be a perfect complement to our completely renewed product range from FH16 through to FL trucks."
