Increased demand for disk drives and storage subsystems will lead to creation of 600 to 800 new jobs by midsummer at Digital Equipment Corp’s Colorado Springs plant boosting the plant’s workforce to 3,600: most of the new jobs will be manufacturing technicians, but there will be nearly 100 new engineering jobs; the new personnel will help triple output by the end of this year with the eventual target more than 1m disk drives a year; DEC has also begun construction on a new disk plant in Penang, Malaysia, scheduled to come on line in June and expected to reach an annual output of 1m drives in a year; the 112,000 square foot facility can grow to 400,000 square feet.
