Manufacturing in North America
In 2008, Vestas invested more than $1 billion to establish several manufacturing facilities in Colorado to serve the North American onshore wind market.
Stimulating Local Economies
Vestas has two North American manufacturing facilities in Colorado specializing in blades and nacelles. Vestas employs about 1,500 people in Colorado and more than 7,000 in the United States and Canada.
Vestas wind turbines are part of a thriving energy supply chain. In 2020, Vestas spent $2.1 billion across more than 1,300 USA-based suppliers and $85 million across 185 suppliers in Canada to support the production, construction, and operations of its turbine fleet.
Components from Vestas’ two factories are used primarily in North America, as well as being exported to Mexico, Uruguay, Brazil, and Europe.
