Project: Expansion for customer demonstration and training center

Jobs Retained/Created: 1,150

Project Description:
Volvo Construction Equipment expanded in Shippensburg with a 53,000 sq. ft. building and 36,000 sq. ft. office building for a customer demonstration and training center. This new expansion retained 1,000 jobs and relocated 150 from North Carolina to Shippensburg.

Volvo currently employs more than 1,000 people representing nearly 20 nationalities working in operations, technology, sales and marketing, and customer support.

The Volvo CE Customer Center opened for dealer events and conferences, site events and a chance for customers to test the Volvo machinery in a simulation site. The center includes a 53,000-sq-ft building and multiple outdoor demonstration areas so that construction companies and equipment retailers can get a closer look at the soil and asphalt compactors, pavers and other machines made in the factory.

Volvo also added a 36,000-sq-ft office building. The company needed the extra space to accommodate the 150 people who moved with its operations from North Carolina.
