The Local in Sweden have a little more on the manufacture of Caddies in Sweden and what it’ll mean for Trollhattan. It’s all good!!
According to the reports, the decision will mean a doubling of production at Trollhattan, and millions of dollars of investment in the plant.
It the reports are confirmed, it means that Trollhattan’s future is secure until 2015. The factories in Trollhattan and Russelheim have been working to improve efficiency since the autumn. The German newspaper’s source says that the improvements mean that both factories will be saved.
