Volvo CE invests in North American operations

  • 04-Apr-2011 05:18 EDT

Volvo Construction Equipment (CE) plans to spend US$100 million in its Shippensburg, PA, manufacturing facility over the next couple of years, and to start production of Volvo wheel loaders, excavators, and articulated haulers in North America. Also, the Volvo CE North American sales headquarters and Volvo Rents will relocate from Asheville, NC, to Shippensburg, PA, by September 2012. A “world-class” Customer and Demonstration Center will be built in Shippensburg, and Volvo CE will put up a new office building on the campus to house its Regional Sales Headquarters, Volvo Rents offices, and Training Center. All Asheville-based employees will be given the opportunity to relocate to Shippensburg, according to Volvo CE; the move will affect about 220 employees. Volvo says that manufacturing wheel loaders, articulated haulers, and excavators in Shippensburg will have no significant impact on the current production in other Volvo locations.
