Volkswagen plans to build a new parts warehouse related to the Chattanooga-made Passat in Roane County, Tenn., an official said today.
The automaker is to break ground on the facility that will be located outside Knoxville on March 13, said Carsten Krebs, VW of America's director of corporate communications.
He said the warehouse will hold replacement parts for the Passat for delivery to dealers in the Southeast United States.
Krebs declined to immediately say how big the warehouse will be, how much it will cost or the number of workers it will employ.
