Volvo grows


Volvo Construction Equipment is to start building excavators in America, with an expansion of its Asheville, North Carolina, factory, which currently makes machine cabs and wheeled loaders. Production will begin in mid-2007. The company has stressed that Asheville will not replace production at its existing plants in Korea, China and Germany.
