Best Summerville area new home communities near Volvo’s USA plant in Ridgeville SC

Volvo SUV

As the construction of Volvo Car USA’s first North American manufacturing plant nears completion in Ridgeville SC for an expected start-up in 2018, the auto manufacturer announced another major investment in the region:  Their XC90 SUV will be built on a second assembly line at the automaker's facility near Ridgeville.

According to Forbes, “Even before producing a single car in South Carolina, Volvo said ... it will double its U.S. investment to $1.1 billion, adding a second production line for the next-generation XC90 with 1,900 additional jobs by 2021.”

This brings the total expected jobs to exceed 5,000 when all elements are up and running. Which might leave you wondering, “Where will all these new people live?” However, Charleston area homebuilders are already building neighborhoods and homes for these new residents.


Hundreds of new homes await buyers working at Volvo

For now, Summerville has a wider selection of new home communities and available homes closest to Volvo however you can expect growth to fill in the distance around the factory in the not too distant future.  Homebuilders and land developers are working fast and hard to provide quality new home communities and homes for Volvo’s workforce and incoming supporting vendors.
