Mr. Serdar Sengul, General Manager of Volvo Cars Cambodia said “I joined Volvo Cars beginning in the year 2000 and worked for the Turkish National Sales Company for 14 years in different positions. Then I took responsibility of the Middle East and North Africa Region as Network and Business Development Manager for 5 years. At the beginning of 2019 I joined HGB Group.Volvo Cars was founded in 1927 in Gothenburg, Sweden.” Sengul continued, “Our reputation as a company is built on safety. Ever since our foundation, protecting the people inside and around our cars has been central to our brand and the way we develop our cars. We have created world-changing innovations in the automotive industry. One example is the 3-point safety belt (1959) which is used in all car brands all over the world, this is a Volvo innovation. Volvo gave the patent away in order to save more lives instead of getting profit from it.”
He adds more “Today Volvo Cars is leading the global automotive industry in safety technology, electrification and autonomous drive. Our vision is that no one should be seriously injured or killed in a new Volvo Car by 2020. And to establish that we are continuously innovating to make people’s lives safer, less complicated and more enjoyable. We are very happy to see the continued Economic growth in Cambodia, its rapidly developing infrastructure and increase in foreign investment. We are proud of bringing this prestigious brand to Cambodia.”
