DUBLIN Va. (WVVA) - A Pulaski County Volo plant plans to layoff approximately 300 workers beginning in January 2013, a company representative has confirmed to NBC affiliate WSLS.

Brandon Borgna with Volvo Trucks media relations, tells WSLS the layoffs are due to a decline in orders.

"We very much regret having to take this action, which is driven by the well-publicized decline in industry orders," Borgna said.

"Continued economic concerns, sluggish job growth, the upcoming election and federal budget discussions have impacted orders as customers delay purchasing decisions."

Borgna added that Volvo is focused on keeping the company "competitive," and making sure that Volvo is a "strong employer for the long term."
