A $69 million investment in state-of-the art equipment, processes and plant redesign will further improve manufacturing efficiency and vehicle quality at Volvo’s New River Valley (NRV) truck assembly plant in Dublin, Virginia.
The enhancements will include state-of-the art, energy-efficient upgrades to the paint facility that will increase North American paint capacity and deliver superior quality.
