Volkswagen Eyes Michigan
(2008-04-23)
(wgvu) - WASHINGTON (AP) - Volkswagen AG has narrowed its list of states
competing for a potential U.S. production facility to Alabama,
Michigan and Tennessee.
The German automaker said it was still evaluating whether to
build a new plant in the United States and would make a final
decision this summer.
Stefan Jacoby, Volkwagen's U.S. president and chief executive,
said the automaker was evaluating cost, logistics, site readiness
and operational considerations as it looks at the three states.
Volkswagen officials have said the surging euro has pushed plans
for a new production facility forward.
