Touring the Vestas Tower Factory in Pueblo

December 8, 2010

Wind tower manufacturing giant Vestas opened a new factory south of Pueblo earlier this year. Two accidents, one of them fatal, marked its first six months of operations, along with the announcement that the international company was laying off some 3000 workers in Europe. Nonetheless, Vestas created some 450 jobs in the Pueblo area, and the company's total workforce at all of its Colorado facilities totals about 1600.
