Volvo Cars is Adding 1,900 New Jobs at South Carolina Facility

Last month, Volvo Cars revealed the company's plans to build its next generation XC90 SUV at its new facility near Charleston, South Carolina, adding 1,900 new jobs at the plant in the process. This is the second vehicle to be manufactured at the Berkeley County plant, increasing the company's cumulative investment in its American manufacturing operations to more than $1.1 billion.

Between taking on production of the next-generation S60 sedan in fall 2018, XC90 coming online in 2021 and expanding a neighboring office campus to house up to 300 employees from the Research & Development, Quality and Purchasing departments, Volvo will have hired nearly 4,000 new employees at the facility.

In a press release, Håkan Samuelsson, President and Chief Executive, stated, "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."
