GREENSBORO, NC—The Volvo Group will build a new assembly plant in Mexico to produce heavy-duty trucks for the North American market.

The plant will provide additional capacity to support the growth plans of both Volvo Trucks and Mack Trucks in the U.S. and Canadian markets, and support Mack truck sales in Mexico and Latin America. The plant is expected to be operational in 2026.

The Mack LVO plant in Pennsylvania and the Volvo NRV plant in Virginia will continue to be the company’s main North American production sites for heavy trucks. The company has invested more than $73 million over the past five years in LVO expansion and upgrades, and is currently investing an additional $80 million to prepare for future production. The NRV plant is completing a six-year, $400 million dollar expansion and upgrade to prepare for production of the new Volvo VNL model.

The new Mexico factory will be approximately 1.7 million square feet and focus on production of heavy-duty conventional vehicles for the Volvo and Mack brands. It will be a complete conventional vehicle assembly facility including cab body-in-white production and paint.
