RE: Volvo sale from Ford

Has anyone heard anything about Ford moving Volvo off their books and officially having Volvo as a stand alone company coming up in near future?<p>I would think this would be the pre-cursor to an impending sale.

Re: Volvo sale from Ford (gabepv544)

I dunno, I think if Ford turns things around at home they might hang on to Volvo. I think they realize how Volvo platforms have really turned their car segment around. IMO it would be stupid for them to ditch Volvo as I have a complete lack of faith in Ford platform design. Name one good platform entirely designed by Ford that is still in use? and D2C doesn't count because that is a hack of DEW which Jaguar had a part in.<p>They are going to run out of good platform talent from Mazda now that they sold off that share.

Internally this is called "Project Delta" and the goal is to have VCNA completely separate by Oct. This includes everything from having VCNA set up their own healthcare for employees to reinstating some of their own policies from the good old days pre-Ford. <p>The employees are happy about separating themselves from Ford but terrified about the prospects of being owned by the Chinese.

My dad was up at their headquarters up near New York a few months ago and he observed/was told that they used to have all of the Volvo and Ford people together (with some of the marketing people in California, I think?), but they were in the midst of splitting them up into their own buildings/offices/etc. and bringing everyone to NY (probably, as you were saying above, to make a sale of them more viable/possible).

I was actually visiting a friend last week in NJ and we stopped by the corporate offices just to see what they look like. It was much smaller than i would have guessed. We did go in and check out the "lobby" and few small displays. It is indeed like right next door to New York, but still definitely in New Jersey. I also have to say that Rockleigh and Closter look like beautiful little cities to live in, very charming area.
