1925 - the first order from Volvo

Assar Gabrielsson was the sales manager at SKF, and together with the engineer Gustaf Larson, who had experience of the British automobile industry, he had decided to invest in a Swedish-built car. With its long experience of engine production, Pentaverken was given the chance to produce an engine – at a very reduced price. The engine was to have a displacement of two liters and an output of 28 horsepower.

Very quickly Volvo became an important customer that gave Pentaverken increased confidence and belief in the future.
