I saw a recent article from the Longmont Newspaper about a Danish wind energy company coming into Colorado and hiring hundreds if not thousands of workers to make those wind things. Supposedly they are hiring in their Windsor, Brighton, and Pueblo factories? Anyone know about that?

Yes, they're also planning to build a research center in Louisville. They already have a presence in Windsor. One would think the factory jobs will pay well.

Default Vestas

Hi - here is the article from the Denver Business Journal:

http://denver.bizjournals.com/denver...2/daily21.html

Vestas Wind System A/S said Tuesday its three Colorado wind turbine factories are officially up and running, and the company has hired more than 1,000 people, with hundreds more expected to be hired in the next 12 to 18 months.

The three factories — in Brighton, Windsor and Pueblo — plus a fourth one under construction in Brighton represent an investment of nearly $1 billion in Colorado since 2007.

In the main COLO forum, in the long thread about Pueblo and Southern Colorado, there are many mentions of this firm. Use the search word VESTAS to find the specific postings in long threads like that one.
