Nissan set to create more than 1 000 jobs

Local production of the next-generation Nissan Navara is expected to create an estimated 1 200 new jobs in the automotive sector. Manufacturing is expected to begin in 2020 at Nissan’s Rosslyn-based facility, where output is expected to grow by more than 50%. Growing the facility’s capacity to this level will require a two-shift operation, which will result in the immediate creation of an additional 400 jobs, Nissan said in a statement on Thursday.
