Volvo Kaluga factory has resumed production

Rossiyskaya Gazeta – Volvo has resumed production in its Kaluga factory, following an eight months break. As one may remember, the factory had suspended production due to market shrinkage in February.

The public relations manager of the company Oleg Vasilichenko has stated that the cabin welding and paint shops have commenced operations on 22 September. With the resumption of operations in the factory, the members of staff, who were laid off in February, have been re-employed.

Volvo Vostok factory, which manufactures Volvo and Renault trucks in Kaluga, was established in January 2009. 1000 people were working at the factory with an annual production capacity of 15,000 trucks, at that point.
