VW moving U.S. base to Virginia

September 07, 2007|From Times Wire Services

Volkswagen is moving its North American headquarters out of the Detroit area to the suburbs of the nation's capital and will cut 400 jobs in the process, the German automaker said.

Volkswagen of America's move to Herndon, Va., from Auburn Hills, Mich., will be completed by the end of next year, the company said.

Volkswagen said it wanted to move closer to the company's customer base, which is strong on the East and West coasts and particularly strong in the mid-Atlantic region.
