Swedish car company Volvo opened the doors of its new UK headquarters in Norreys Drive on Monday.
After 26 years at its previous location in Marlow it marks the start of the new chapter for the popular car manufacturer.
About 90 people have been transferred from the Marlow branch with the move hoping to help the business fulfil its ambitions of doubling its vehicle sales in the next decade.
A spokesman for the company said the reason it had to chosen to transfer the headquarters to the town was to take advantage of the excellent transports links and close proximity to London.
"We have invested in a total refurbishment of our new headquarters and are committed to driving our business forward to a bright future in Maidenhead," he added.
The firm's operation in Globe Park, Marlow, has closed.
