Volvo Trucks Expanding NRV Plant

28 June 2019

Electric trucks eventually as well?

The Volvo Group today announced plans to invest nearly $400 million over six years to upgrade its New River Valley, Va, (NRV) operations.  The NRV plant produces all Volvo trucks sold in North America. 

The upgrades include expansion of the industrial footprint and installation of a variety of equipment that Volvo said will improve plant efficiency and deliver higher product quality for customers.

Specifically, major components of the investment include a new 350,000 sq. ft. building that will ultimately house truck cab welding operations; an expansion of the existing plant to allow for further improvements to the facility’s paint operations and overall material/production flow; and a variety of  equipment upgrades, including installation of several dynamometers for vehicle testing.

“The outstanding product line currently produced at NRV has strongly positioned Volvo Trucks for the future,” said Peter Voorhoeve, president of Volvo Trucks North America.  “This investment is another sign of our confidence in that future and will help us prepare for even more exciting products – powered by both diesel and electric drivetrains – in the coming years.”
