1960s- 70

Bilia in its current form has origins way back in 1967, when AB Volvo formed the wholly owned subsidiary Volvator to coordinate its dealerships and provide assistance in generational shifts.

During the 1960s, Volvator expanded in Sweden. In the 1970s and ’80s, it also entered the Danish and German markets.

1980s- 90s

The company’s name was changed to Catena in conjunction with public listing in 1984. The name was changed to Bilia in 1997. At the time the company sold cars, trucks and construction machinery in 11 countries.

2000

In 2003 Bilia distributed the Trucks and Construction Machinery Division to AB Volvo. Since then Bilia has concentrated on cars and light transport vehicles, supplemented by a large number of acquisitions in recent years, including Toyota and BMW/MINI operations in Sweden and Norway, and BMW/MINI operations in Western Europe.
