Nijhof said, “One of the main pillars of Nijhof-Wassink is the company’s culture, which is characterised by great team spirit. We are convinced that our employees make the difference and account for our quality. Volvo fits well into this culture, because quality has a high priority for Volvo”.

Like all the others in the company the 1500th Volvo truck is equipped with various safety features since, in addition to quality, safety plays an important role at Nijhof-Wassink.

“We can be sure that our people are safe in the Volvo and we feel this is very important,” explains Freddy Nijhof.
