Dell readies new assembly plant
EMEA facility to open in Poland
Hardware giant Dell has confirmed that it is expanding its Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) manufacturing operation by building a new facility in Poland.
Scheduled to open in 2007, the new facility is expected to employ around 1,000 staff.
Paul Bell, senior VP at Dell EMEA, said: “Proximity to a large base of Dell customers, the significant opportunity for growth comprised by the Central and Eastern European economies, and the availability of a well-educated Polish workforce were key factors in our decision.”
The new facility has the potential to alter Dell’s Middle East supply chain.
Local management claim that the new Polish facility — in addition to the existing EMEA plant in Limerick, Ireland — will offer another sourcing option.
