Volvo Car Torslanda’s 50th anniversary celebrations put the focus firmly on the employees – the people behind the constant development. One of the world’s most flexible car plants, Volvo Car Torslanda sets the benchmark for other manufacturers.
Volvo Cars today opens its new 24,000 square metres manufacturing facility in Torslanda, Gothenburg, increasing its manufacturing capacity from approximately 200,000 cars a year to approximately 300,000 a year and moving it a significant step closer towards achieving its long term goal of selling 800,000 cars a year.
The third shift in Volvo Cars’ Torslanda plant started today, creating nearly 1,500 new jobs in the company’s Western Swedish home region. The introduction of the additional night shift comes as Volvo has now started production of the all new XC90 seven-seater SUV, for which the company has already received close to 30,000 pre-orders.
