Volvo Cars is Adding 1,900 New Jobs to its South Carolina Plant

Last month, Volvo Cars announced that the next generation XC90 SUV will be built at its new manufacturing facility in Berkeley County, South Carolina. This marks the second vehicle to be built at the plant, and raises the company's total investment in its American manufacturing operations to more than $1.1 billion, and will increase the number of new jobs generated at the Charleston site to almost 4,000.

The plant will begin production of the next-generation S60 sedan in fall 2018, with the XC90 starting up in 2021. Thanks to this expansion, as well as a planned office campus, Volvo is adding 1,900 new jobs to the 2,000 employees currently being hired.

In a press release, Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive, commented, "The continued expansion of our plant in South Carolina is another significant commitment to the US market. The plant in Charleston will serve both the US and international markets and forms a strong foundation for our future growth in the U.S. and globally."
