Many shared in the excitement of a $4 million loan approved by the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development.
"We're very excited to meet someone of his status.
"The $400 million loan from the state and the $200,000 loan from the county. It has been a fantastic partnership for the past couple of years," said Belinda Vinson of Volvo Group.
Persson said at the end of the day it's all about working as a team.
