Vision and an ability to think outside the square has always been a Grenda Corporation trademark. In the year 1977, Grenda used these skills to develop Volgren, a bus and coach body-manufacturing business. Today Volgren is Australia's largest bus and coach manufacturing business, and has expanded its business to include kits supply to the Asian market and other Australian states.
In 1977, Volgren was initially licensed through Volvo, who held the rights to a Swiss aluminium body concept. In 1986, the Volvo license expired, allowing Volgren to deliver its unique aluminium body on any make of chassis. This strategic move gave Volgren the flexibility to grow and respond to customer demand for bodies built on a range of chassis, and become the platform for an outstanding success story.
Volgren uses market-focused research and development to further its history of innovative, technologically advanced viable development. By engineering a product that takes 'whole of life' costing into account, the solution has obvious benefits to the customer. Using only the best materials, the body is founded on cutting edge technology that produces an integrally strong, inherently safe body, featuring high corrosion resistance and easy repairability. Volgren's aluminium extrusion body technique, joined by a system of bolt up gusseted joints, provides a world class body solution. Besides the benefits of reduced repair and maintenance, it gives the operator the ability to work the vehicle longer hours, as well as reducing their spare bus ratio. The Volgren concept facilitates the delivery of buses and coaches that are either fully built or in CKD (completely knocked down) kit format. The degree of local manufacturing and material sourcing can be tailored to suit individual customer requirements.
High demand for its product has seen Volgren's manufacturing capabilities rapidly expand in recent years. Large investments in Information Technology, factory floor space, plant, equipment and people has it well positioned to meet current and future requirements. Volgren produces a complete range of buses and coaches, including double and single deck city buses, school buses, touring coaches and other specialist vehicles.
