Volvo Trucks Australia is making a cheeky bid for the Australian of the Year title ahead of the Australia Day celebrations.
With the 2019 Australian of the Year being announced Friday, on the eve of Australia Day, Volvo Trucks is suggesting its FH truck is a worthy contender for the most prestigious of nominations.
“It ticks every box,” Volvo Group Australia President and CEO, Martin Merrick said.
“It makes a significant contribution to the community, it’s an inspirational role model for Australia and is an Australian citizen. Why shouldn’t it be Australian of the Year?”
All Volvo FH and FM models produced at Volvo Group Australia’s Wacol factory are certified to carry the coveted ‘Australian Made’ stamp.
Martin Merrick added: “We are extremely proud of the Volvo FH’s 25 year history and we look forward to continuing our innovative Australian manufacturing story.”
