Additional Information

Swedish electric car manufacturer, Nevs (National Electric Vehicle Sweden), is to hire 150 new workers at its site in Trollhättan.

A representative from the company's personnel department indicated that at  least 85 percent of the new recruits will be engineers. The company is starting up operations again after having signed a cooperation agreement with one of China's largest vehicle manufacturers, Dongfeng. The company appears to have recovered from its previous restructuring less than a year ago, when 155 workers were dismissed.
