Vendor reduces costs by moving EMEA manufacturing capacity to Poland

Dell cuts 1900 Irish jobs

Dell has confirmed that it is to relocate its European production base to Poland as part of a drive to reduce costs.

The move, which has been speculated since September, will see the loss of 1900 jobs at Dell’s Limerick facilities, according to CRN. However, a number of administrational jobs will remain as Dell looks to continue coordinating logistics and supply from Ireland.

“We are proud of our 18-year tenure as a major manufacturer in Ireland,” said Dell’s vice president of operations, EMEA, Sean Corkery. “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.”
