I think we'll move this into the Central Bank thread, as it's more a general economy thing...

To an extent this is true, however a company like Dell is always looking to shave a few more cents of the cost of production. The move to Poland will allow them to cut costs further. The net effect will not be the closure of the Limerick plant but the scaling back and halt to any future growth.

The plant in poland is being setup to supply the growing eastern european market. The plant in ireland is needed to supply the UK and beyond. Thats not to say there may or may not be job cuts but this what i am being told.

Reading between the lines there Holding On, it doesn't look good. It can't be that expensive or time consuming to ship PCs from Poland to the UK.
