Volvo CE Celebrates DD25 Electric Compactor and New Training Facility
Published: 28/12, 2023
Volvo Construction Equipment, in partnership with the Association of Equipment Manufacturers, recently hosted U.S. Representative John Joyce to celebrate the company’s first electric asphalt compactor, which was designed and is produced at its Shippensburg, Pa., facility.
The DD25 Electric compactor highlights the equipment manufacturing industry’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, encouraging contractors, builders, and operators to build the modern infrastructure needed for a 21st century economy and global marketplace, while reducing their environmental footprint.
Rep. Joyce joined Volvo CE to mark this momentous occasion and noted the positive impact it will have on the local economy in bringing more high-paying jobs to the area.
In honor of the hard work and commitment of Volvo CE’s employees in designing and producing this state-of-the-art technology, AEM brought “I Make America,” the association’s national grassroots campaign, to celebrate the Shippensburg facility’s more than 800 employees. “I Make America” partners with member companies in hosting elected officials in facilities across the country and celebrates the grit, dedication, and ingenuity of the equipment manufacturing industry’s 2.3 million men and women.
As part of the event, Volvo CE held a ribbon-cutting for the company’s new technical training center. Located at the Shippensburg campus, facility will expand the company’s capacity and offerings for hands-on training and continuing education through virtual platforms.
