Libertyville - Illinois - US

Jan. 11, 2013 - PRLog -- Having long been purveyors of fine automobiles, the team at Libertyville Volkswagen (http://www.libertyvw.com/libertyville-il.aspx) has been proud to stand by the automaker as they increase their global market presence, so it is with great pride that they announce that Volkswagen has created over 100,000 jobs all over the world since 2007.

Dr. Horst Neumann, a member of the Volkswagen human resources board, has shared that the automaker has actually added nearly a quarter of a million employees since 2007, with 100,000 of them being newly created positions while the remainder are accounted for by companies recently acquired by the automaker.

Many of these positions were junior-level staff, with nearly 16,000 of their 550,000 employees being apprentices. While many corporations are looking to tighten their belt in the wake of the economic downturn, Volkswagen is attempting to make their company more attractive to junior staff and secure their position as a leading automaker into the future.

To put the advancement of Volkswagen in perspective, their current staff is an increase of over 70 percent more than five years ago.

In addition to bringing on more employees, Volkswagen's $27 million facility in Oxnard, California, represents just a fraction of the $4 billion that they have earmarked for US market growth. It is also only a portion of the $100 million that the automaker has planned for California expansion.

Constructed for the purpose of research and development, this facility is set to employ 50 permanent engineers to handle parts analysis, powertrain design, government compliance, quality and emissions testing, and dealer service and training. In line with the automaker's continuing attempts at being a green corporation, the building features 2,500 solar panels that are set to reduce total energy costs by as much as one third.

To learn more about the automaker and their vehicles, readers have been asked to contact Libertyville Volkswagen (http://www.libertyvw.com/contact.aspx). Their dealership carries the full lineup of new VW models as well as a diverse variety of pre-owned vehicles. The showroom at Libertyville VW also handles auto financing, maintenance, and repair, and is open six days a week at 920 South Milwaukee Avenue in Libertyville.
