The second European Dell plant in Poland is officially open. The location of the new factory means that Central and Eastern European and Nordic customers can expect a reduction of at least two days over current delivery times.
Complementing the successful Ireland-based manufacturing operation, the Łódź facility will initially produce the Latitude and Inspiron laptop computers, which are customized to meet the specific needs of Dell’s business and retail customers.
Dell’s new 37,000 square-meter manufacturing facility is a result of a €200 million investment. Indirect investment made by suppliers of the American corporation will reach approximately €53 million.
The factory currently employs 1,200 people and Dell was recently awarded first prize for top new site or “Greenfield” investor employing the highest number of people by the Polish Information and Foreign Investment Agency and the Warsaw Voice daily newspaper.
The opening was attended by Dell CEO, Micheal Dell, as well as members of the Polish national and local governments.
