AB Volvo reportedly will build diesel engines for North American vehicles at its Hagerstown, MD, plant. Volvo’s Mack-brand engines have been built at Hagerstown since 1961, but diesel engines for Volvo-brand trucks sold in North America have been produced at Volvo’s Skovde, Sweden, facility. Volvo says it will invest $150 million over a 4-year period at Hagerstown, which employs some 1,200 people. There’s no word on how the announcement will affect employment levels at Hagerstown or Skovde.
