Remaining staff to learn of Dell's future plans

Barry Duggan

WORKERS at one of the country's biggest employers will today be briefed on the company's future plans -- two years after almost 2,000 of their colleagues were made redundant.

Founder and CEO of Dell computers, Michael Dell, is to address 1,000 of his 2,300 Irish staff at the Limerick plant of the multinational company.

It is Mr Dell's first visit to Limerick since the computer giant announced its decision to close down its manufacturing base at the Raheen, Limerick, plant in January 2009, leaving 1,900 people jobless. The jobs were moved to a cheaper workforce at Lodz, Poland.

Workers can rest easy as the head of Dell computers is expected to talk about its position in a highly competitive market and how the company can become more profitable.

Dell is currently recruiting for up to 150 cloud-computing jobs and various professionals including software engineers, IT architects, engineers and developers are being sought.

Following today's visit to Limerick, Mr Dell will tomorrow move on to Cherrywood, Dublin, where 1,300 workers are based.
