The acquisition of the road machinery division of Ingersoll Rand in April 2007 by Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) included twenty Ingersoll Rand company stores,which provide sales, service, parts and rental to construction equipment customers in local markets. The company stores’ organization, formerly Ingersoll Rand Equipment & Services, began operating as Volvo Construction Equipment & Services (VCES) on July 1, 2007.
The majority of sales through these VCES stores will continue to be road machinery, forklifts, and Ingersoll Rand utility products. Some of the stores will be considered for the Volvo compact equipment products.
The VCES branches, under the management of Volvo CE North America, are located in eleven states. Operations administration for all locations is managed in Annandale, New Jersey.
