Logistics BusinessJobs Boost For Renault Trucks at French Production Sites

Renault Trucks intends to recruit a number of new employees in 2017 for its Lyon, Bourg-en-Bresse, Limoges and Blainville-sur-Orne manufacturing facilities in response to its favourable business outlook.

Throughout the year, Renault Trucks will be recruiting around 273 operatives on permanent contracts for its production sites in Lyon (Rhône), Bourg-en-Bresse (Ain), Limoges (Haute-Vienne) and Blainville-sur-Orne (Calvados).

“Renault Trucks has got off to a good start in 2017 with growing business and good sales prospects,” explains Renault Trucks President Bruno Blin. “European deliveries rose by 6% in 2016 and the current workload of our plants and our confidence in our future development has prompted us to invest in sustainable manufacturing jobs.”

The Blainville-sur-Orne site which specialises in medium-duty vehicles and truck cabs will create a hundred jobs on the assembly line, in the bodywork and paint shops and the logistics platform. The Bourg-en-Bresse site, which assembles Renault Trucks heavy-duty vehicles, will be recruiting 50 new staff and six new employees will be joining the Limoges site where parts and components are remanufactured.

Finally, the Lyon site will create 117 jobs in engine assembly, axle assembly, stamping and logistics.
