VW Plant Decision Could Come After July 15th
(2008-07-07)
(APR - Alabama Public Radio ) - A spokesman for Germany's Volkswagen AG says it likely will announce a decision on its plans for a new U.S. plant after a supervisory board meeting next week.

Wolfsburg-based Volkswagen, Europe's largest carmaker, has been mulling a new production facility in Alabama, Tennessee or Michigan.

The company wants to increase its presence in the U.S., where it holds only 2 percent of the market. VW officials have said the company intends to more than triple its U.S. sales to 1 million by 2018.

Christoph Adomat, a spokesman for VW, said Monday that an official announcement is most likely some time after a July 15 meeting of the supervisory board the German equivalent of a board of directors.

He declined to comment on the progress of discussions.
