VW adding 200 jobs at Tennessee assembly plant

Volkswagen is creating another 200 jobs at its Chattanooga, Tenn. assembly plant as production increases.

A plant spokesman said in a statement Tuesday that the positions are needed as production capacity increases from 31 to 35 cars per hour.

The new jobs will be integrated into Volkswagen's current two-shift operation and filled by full-time Volkswagen employees.

The Volkswagen plant in Chattanooga currently employs more than 2,500 people, about 2,000 by Volkswagen and 500 by staffing partner Aerotek.

Human resources manager Ryan Rose said many Aerotek employees will get the VW jobs but that will create openings at Aerotek.
