Dell CEO speaks on Limerick jobs

Dell is continuing to play down fears in Limerick that jobs will be lost. As an official announcement nears regarding to the future of 3,000 Dell jobs in Limerick, it’s chief executive Kevin Rollins (right) has said that Dell manufacturing operations in Limerick will continue to "meet the needs of customers in parts of Europe"

However he stressed that a new facility to be located in Lodz, Poland was essential to be "close to customers" in emerging markets.

The CEO was speaking at Dell's annual technology day in New York yesterday,

"Our relationship with Ireland has been exceptional and we appreciate the support we have received from the Irish Government and our partners. However, there are other markets we need to get into. We have to be close to customers in those markets and that is best done by having multiple sites in Europe."
Rumors continue to swirl around Dell in Raheen and only time will tell.
