Volkswagen’s Partnership with Virginia Yields Early Success


Company Doubles Sales Volume Since 2009


In September 2007, Volkswagen Group of America announced it would move its headquarters from Michigan to Fairfax County, Va., creating more than 400 new jobs. The $118 million investment included a new 185,000-square-foot facility that would be the home of a renowned portfolio of brands, including Audi, Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Volkswagen and VW Credit Inc.

Volkswagen celebrated the opening of its new building just one year later. Since then, the company has experienced tremendous growth in Virginia’s pro-business environment. 2012 marked a banner year for the company—Volkswagen doubled sales volume since 2009, experienced its third year of double-digit growth and its best year since 1973. The company is well on its way to achieving an aggressive goal of one million U.S. car sales by 2018.
