The Shippensburg facility has been committed to producing quality construction equipment for over 30 years. The business was acquired by Volvo CE from Ingersoll Rand in April 2007 for $1.3 billion USD. A 200,000 square foot expansion was completed in June of 2010 which includes a new assembly hall and materials building.
In March of 2011, Volvo CE invested in a $100 million USD expansion which brought in wheel loaders and will bring the edition of articulated haulers and excavators in the future. The investment also relocated the Sales team from Asheville, NC to Shippensburg, PA into a new Sales office that is attached to the Operations plant.
Today, the site employs over 1000 employees representing nearly 20 nationalities working in operations, technology, sales and marketing, and customer support.
The facility currently manufactures soil and asphalt compactors, motor graders, pavers and screeds, wheel loaders and milling machines. Operations include welding, large machining, paint, and assembly.
In June 2014 the Volvo CE Customer Center will open in Shippensburg, PA for dealer events and conferences, site events and a chance for customers to test the Volvo machinery in a simulation site.
