Against a background of strong economic growth, the Renault Trucks manufacturing site at Blainville-sur-Orne, the first European plant to manufacture series production electric trucks, is to hire 100 more staff on permanent contracts for 2022.
These 100 new recruits will join the 1,546 employees on permanent contracts at the Normandy production site.
As demand for electric vehicles intensifies, the plant, which has already boosted its production capacity, is increasing its workforce in response.
Sustained production levels at the Blainville-sur-Orne (Calvados) plant, coupled with favourable development prospects, particularly in the field of electric vehicles, have led Renault Trucks to invest in additional and sustainable manufacturing jobs.
Since 2020, the Blainville-sur-Orne plant has been mass-producing medium-duty electric trucks. In 2021, in response to the growing demand for electric vehicles, it adapted its manufacturing facilities and increased production capacity to meeting rising demand from the market. The plant plans to produce a couple of thousand units per year.
