Great year for orders leads to “significant hiring” at Vestas
By Anthony Capkun
March 11, 2014 – Vestas says that one of its best years for wind turbine orders has led to “significant hiring” at its four Colorado factories. The company’s blade factory in Windsor, blade and nacelle factories in Brighton, and tower factory in Pueblo expect to add more than 850 production workers this year after Vestas secured orders in 2013 for nearly 900 turbines.
“We are going to be extremely busy making blades, nacelles and towers this year through at least 2015,” said Chris Brown, president of Vestas’ sales and service division in Canada and the United States.
Based on orders received in 2013, Vestas says it has the potential for an additional 2.6GW of turbine sales in Canada and the States.
