Volkswagen may be a German brand, but you can bet that it excels when it comes to operating in America. In fact, Volkswagen recently announced its intention to expand its American operations in a big way.
According to a Volkswagen press release, the automaker will invest $11.3 million in a new distribution center and training center in California.
$6.8 million of that commitment will go toward the completion of a Volkswagen distribution center in Rocklin, California. This facility will construct and distribute vehicles to 94 dealerships across the West Coast.
The remaining $4.5 million will be allocated to the creation of a brand-new service training center, set to be located nearby in Eastvale, California.
“The new parts distribution center and upcoming training center in California is a testament to Volkswagen Group of America’s continued investment and commitment to the U.S market, our customers, and dealers,” said Hinrich J. Woebcken, president and CEO of Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. “The company remains focused on these types of strategic investments that will enable long-term growth in the United States.”
With the implementation of these two new VW distribution and training centers, Volkswagen has ensured that the very best of its North American specialists and vehicles will be headed to the California area!
