In response to increased demand, Volvo will ramp up production at its New River Valley (NRV) assembly plant in Dublin. The production increase will occur late in the second quarter and result in the hiring of about 200 people. NRV currently employs about 2,350.
“We’re very pleased by the opportunity to increase production, and in turn, help the community by expanding our workforce,” said Lars Blomberg, vice president and NRV general manager.
Through February, Volvo truck deliveries in North America were up 80 percent compared with the same period last year.
