Volvo Penta Celebrates 100th Anniversary

February 12, 2007

Volvo Penta was established in 1907 – the year the company produced its first marine engine. Volvo Penta has had global innovations with the Aquamatic sterndrive, Duoprop counter-rotating propellers and, most recently, the IPS system with the forward-facing propellers.

Volvo Penta’s engines are known for their quality and long service lives. A common desire among owners of older Volvo Penta engine models is to have access to instruction books and manuals for engines that are no longer in production. In time for the anniversary, Volvo Penta is now launching a website from which various publications will be available on almost all engines that were launched by Volvo Penta since its start in 1907.
