Dell Scouts Nashville for U.S. Expansion
According to a report in the Nashville Tenneseean, Dell will open the plant with about 2,000 workers, but could expand employment to 10,000. A Dell spokesperson could not immediately be reached for comment.
Dell said an exact site for the facility had not yet been determined. In addition, Dell said it will expand its central Texas operations by adding another office building and another manufacturing facility.
The company, which had $18.2 billion in sales during the past four quarters, has been growing at a 50-percent rate and had been expected to expand its domestic infrastructure. Dell said it also had considered sites in several other areas of the country.
