(15 June, 2021, Dubai) FAMCO (Al-Futtaim Auto & Machinery Company), the UAE’s leading heavy vehicle and machinery importer, has launched its new cutting-edge Volvo Trucks range as it reinforces its market-leading position in the Emirates.
The new-generation FH, FM and FMX heavy-duty trucks have been redesigned to deliver even higher levels of productivity, class-leading safety features, as well as a more driver-friendly experience with an enhanced driver interface, interior space and overall visibility. These advanced models deliver a stronger return on range, giving users an environmental and financial saving in the process.

With the support of the Swedish truck brand, FAMCO has invested in state-of-the-art facilities and software that works with the customer to ensure world-class levels of service, uninterrupted parts availability and, most importantly, reduced downtime for vehicles in the field.
