On March 23rd, 2018, FirmaSud, the new Volvo Penta dealer for Sicily has been opened in Catania. The new headquarters of FirmaSud include an exhibition area, a mechanical workshop and a spare parts warehouse in a 1,200-square-metre space.
The Volvo Penta Center is operative in the new headquarters since April 2017 and counts 9 employees. Moreover, FirmaSud holds a sales outlet in Siracusa since 2014. The supply offered by FirmaSud includes the sale of Volvo Penta engines and spare parts, as well as assistance and repair services for the marine and industrial clients.
