We at CJD Equipment remain committed to do our utmost to provide our valued customers with the best possible service.

Celebrating a major milestone

It was back in 1992 when one of the world’s largest construction equipment manufacturers appointed CJD to be their West Australian dealer. It was a proud moment for us, and the beginning of a long and mutually rewarding relationship that has now achieved a remarkable thirty years longevity. Everyone knows the name Volvo; it is synonymous around the world with quality, safety and reliability. As a leading international manufacturer of premium construction equipment, Volvo is at the forefront of construction technology, and they have a well-deserved global reputation for providing total equipment solutions that are both innovative and sustainable.

Volvo has always been a good fit with CJD. Since our establishment in 1974, we’ve grown rapidly to include a network of dealerships and service centres that stretches across Australia, from capital cities to regional country towns and mining centres. We have built our business on integrity, trust, and the quality of our personal customer service, whether our clients are based in a major city or a remote mining town.

Following the success of our West Australian Volvo dealership, other states quickly followed, and in 2001, we were appointed National Volvo Distributor – a huge recognition of our hard work and commitment to the industry. In 2013, our portfolio expanded yet again with the commencement of the Volvo Rents business.

Our partnership with Volvo means we can offer all our clients the best advice and support, from choosing and purchasing the right Volvo machine to making sure it receives the backup, repairs, service and care required for the duration of its working life. As Volvo’s sole distributor in Australia, we can deliver Volvo’s wide range of state-of-the-art construction equipment anywhere in the country, along with our first-class customer service.

CJD Equipment is proud of its thirty-year partnership with Volvo. It demonstrates the strength and trust between our two companies, and means we can all look forward to a stronger, brighter future in Australia’s exciting construction industry.
