Volvo awarded contract

The Volvo plant in Dublin will be used to manufacture 152 tractor-trailer rigs as part of a $30 million contract the U.S. Army has awarded to Volvo Trucks North America.
According to the Associated Press, the Army awarded two contracts to Volvo, with the largest contract ($28.5 million) being awarded for the trucks to be built in Dublin.
Volvo announced in August that the Mack Trucks division would be moved to its production facility in Macugnie, Penn., “some time in the fourth quarter of 2008.”
Volvo spokesman Jim McNamara was on vacation and could not be reached for comment today as to why the trucks will be built in Dublin rather than in Pennsylvania, or whether the new Army contract will mean some of the 1,000 workers recently laid off at the Dublin plant will be called back.
Attempts to reach other spokespersons for Volvo this morning also were unsuccessful.
According to the Associated Press, the Army also awarded Mack a $1 million contract for research and development work in Hagerstown, Md., on making a heavy-duty diesel engine run on jet fuel.

Volvo spokesman John Walsh told the Associated Press that the engine conversion would meet a military efficiency requirement to have its aircraft, watercraft and vehicles all run on a single fuel.
The Volvo plant in Dublin currently employs about 600 workers.
Volvo is an internatinal complany, which is headquartered in Sweden.
