The acquisition of the road machinery division of Ingersoll Rand in April 2007 by Volvo Construction Equipment included 20 Ingersoll Rand company stores providing sales, service, parts and rental to construction equipment customers in their markets. The company stores organization, formerly Ingersoll Rand Equipment & Services, began operating as Volvo Construction Equipment & Services on July 1.
The majority of sales through these VCES stores will continue to be road machinery, forklifts and Ingersoll Rand utility products. In addition, 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 11 states. Operations administration for all locations is managed in Annandale, N.J.
