We are open to innovation, have ideas, pursue big goals and put them into practice.
Since 1986, we have been the exclusive dealer of Volvo Construction Equipment in Austria. It all began with the opening of the headquarters in Bergheim near Salzburg. At that time, the company was still under the name “Rolba”. From 2004 to 2013, we became part of a global group for the first time, as “Volvo Construction Equipment”. Since 2013, we have been Ascendum, relying on a strong, trans-regional network. Little by little, branches were opened all over Austria, so that our network now includes 6 sites and 180 staff.
Ascendum is backed by a team of 180 people. Every single one of them makes a vital contribution to the success of the company. As a traditional company, we place great emphasis on personal advice and close client relationships. Nobody is just a number here; we are all Ascendum. To give you an insight into the responsibilities, we would like to introduce you to our senior and division managers.
Our corporate culture comprises three core values, to be: ambitious, reliabile and client-centric. On the way to achieving our goals, we deliberately push our limits, to achieve results that are even better. We work as a team and share our knowledge. For many years, clients have relied on our know-how and we are therefore able to exceed expectations. We focus on the requirements and challenges of our clients, as the client comes first for Ascendum.
