Job Fairs to be Held in Pueblo and Colorado Springs. The company has signed an agreement to supply towers for a number of non-Vestas wind power projects over the next two years.
PUEBLO, Colo. —
Adjusting to its new business reality, Vestas says it is implementing its plan to create a more flexible and scalable business to adapt the company to the uncertain market situation in the wind industry. Part of this plan is to more effectively use the existing production capacity. This new agreement is a step in securing this, according to the Danish manufacturer.
The agreement means Vestas will ramp up at its tower factory in Pueblo, Colorado. Vestas soon will begin manufacturing the first part of a third-party tower supply agreement that could use up to 25 per cent of the production capacity. The agreement will create more than 100 jobs by the end of the first quarter of 2013.
“We are pleased with this new agreement. Vestas is known for having industry-leading quality in our manufacturing processes and facilities, and it is satisfying that other companies recognise this by choosing to use our factories to produce components for their projects,” said Jean-Marc Lechêne, Executive Vice President & COO for Vestas Wind Systems A/S.
