Dell transfers Lodz manufacturing operations to Foxconn

To serve its regional customers and strengthen its long-term position in EMEA

By CBR Staff Writer

Dell said that it is transfering and aligning its Polland Lodz manufacturing operations to Taiwanese electronics firm Foxconn Technology Group, in a move to enable it to serve its regional customers and strengthen its long-term position in Europe, the Middle Ease and Africa (EMEA).

Following the transfer, the company will continue to outsource desktop and notebook computers, servers and storage systems for EMEA customers from Lodz through Foxconn.

Dell said that the the combination of its operations and Foxconn’s environmentally-friendly manufacturing will benefit customers by providing them a broad range of high-performance computer systems.

Sean Corkery, vice president of supply-chain operations at Dell, said: “Extending our relationship with Foxconn allows us to help customers grow and succeed by making the most of their IT investments, in a way they’ve come to expect from Dell. We’re pleased that Foxconn recognises the knowledge and skills of the Dell Lodz employees and will continue to rely on them to fulfill customer requirements and grow the operation.”

Dell’s current employees in Lodz will continue in their roles when Foxconn assumes management of the operation, sustaining jobs in the region. The announcement does not affect Dell’s sales and marketing office in Warsaw, Poland and is subject to European Union regulatory approval and closing processes.
