Volvo results rolled strongly recently.  “In the first quarter the Volvo Group increased its net sales by 16% to SEK 89.1 billion with good demand in most markets globally. Our operating income amounted to SEK 8.3 billion (6.8) with a corresponding margin of 9.3% (8.9). Earnings in Construction Equipment continued to increase strongly while Trucks was on par with last year.
