Dell to create 1000 jobs in Poland
Finally Dell commits to its Polish investment plans, reported local business media Warsaw Business Journal.
After more than a year of negotiations, representatives of Dell and the Polish government have finally signed a letter of intent to invest in a new plant in Poland. "We will invest EUR 200 million, and our contractors will add another EUR 53 million," announced Dell's deputy president for the EMEA region, Sean Cockery. In october next year the manufacturing is expected to start with 1000 workers initially. "We will be producing laptops, computers and servers like the ones we produce at our plant in Limerick, Ireland, but aimed at a different market. The products from Lódz will be exported to Scandinavia, Germany, Central and Eastern Europe," added Cockery. The plant in Lódz is expected to reach its full capacity in 2011, when it is to employ 3,000 workers.
