Charging ahead in technician training

The shift to electrification requires more than switching to zero exhaust machines – the whole supply chain needs to be empowered to optimise these game-changing construction solutions. To ease the transition, Volvo Construction Equipment (Volvo CE) is going above and beyond in supporting equipment rental company Loxam to make the most of their new electric acquisitions.

Following the arrival of 18 Volvo ECR25 Electric machines in the Loxam rental branches located across France, Volvo CE is carrying out thorough training sessions to ensure these electric compact excavators are offering the best possible value to customers. Support covers everything from the technical – maintenance, charging systems and mechanics – through to the commercial knowledge required to guide employees, technicians and customers on the market value, site productivity and environmental benefits of going electric. 

Sébastien Perusse, Sales Manager for Compact Machines, at Volvo CE, says: “This is an entirely different approach to how we would normally engage with dealerships during the sale of more conventional construction machines. It’s a great opportunity to not only create a new market that is fully equipped and energized to move to electric machines, but also to engage directly with customers and respond to their own unique requirements.” An electric solution for low emission zones Loxam, the number one rental company in France and in Europe has been a partner of Volvo CE for more than 25 years. Loxam recently launched its LoxGreen range of equipment in a bid to rent out more environmentally friendly electric, hybrid and natural gas-powered machines – perfectly suited to the requirements of neighbouring low emission zones.
