Vestas plans even more hiring, building expansions in Windsor as company grows in Weld County


GREELEY, Colorado — Wind energy equipment manufacturer Vestas is continuing to ramp up production in Colorado facilities, with recruiting events planned for this month.

The Greeley Tribune reports (http://bit.ly/1IM8Mon ) that the Denmark-based company announced Wednesday two hiring fairs in August to help fill the last of 400 open positions announced in March. Vestas has three manufacturing facilities in Weld County. Officials say they hope to add up to 250 additional employees in their Windsor and Brighton manufacturing plants.

Factory manager Hans Jespersen says the Windsor facility will be expanded by about 100,000 square feet to house the new employees.

The company has said orders for wind turbines are expected to pick up dramatically in the United States as demand for renewable energy increases and electrical production improves.
