Dell Moves Production to Poland

U.S. computer giant Dell is moving part of its production from Ireland to its Polish factory in £ód¼, a step expected to see 1,900 workers in the Irish city of Limerick lose their jobs over the next year.

The move is one of a number of steps Dell is taking to streamline processes, raise productivity, cut costs and improve customer satisfaction. This is all part of a plan meant to result in savings of $3 billion, as announced by Dell last year.

The first layoffs in Limerick will take place in April. "This is a difficult decision, but the right one for Dell to become even more competitive and deliver greater value to customers in the region," said Sean Corkery, operations and manufacturing vice president for Dell Europe, Middle East and Africa.

"The choice of Poland by such a renowned company as Dell, especially in the face of the deteriorating economic situation around the world, is good news because it testifies to our country's strong competitive position," said Pawe³ Wojciechowski, Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency chairman. "We are laying solid foundations for innovation on the back of IT industry projects like this one. The IT sector offers especially good development conditions on account of Poland's higher education competitiveness in this field," he added.
