Nordex started production at the newly built wind turbine manufacturing plant in Jonesboro, Arkansas, USA. The first Jonesboro production crew, hired earlier this year, just completed a 10-week intensive training program at Nordex’s plant in Rostock, Germany.

Training will continue during the early phase of production, with the team’s German counterparts now taking up residence in Jonesboro for several months to work alongside their new colleagues. Nordex broke ground on its manufacturing plant last September, completing construction in July of this year. The company has hired 150 employees in the US to date, including 42 in Jonesboro, and has plans to employ up to 1000 nationally over four to five years. About 80% of the workforce in Jonesboro are locals. Construction on a second facility for assembling rotor blades is also planned for the future.
