Dell’s India plant to open by year end

26 May 2006 – New Delhi (IND): Dell expects its proposed Indian plant to begin production by the end of 2006, it has revealed. This, it hopes, will help the company win share on the booming subcontinent by cutting delivery time.

"Local manufacturing will enable us to have the same supply and delivery chains as we have in many other markets," said Paul-Henri Ferrand, Dell’s VP for South Asia.

Dell did not announce the location of the plant nor how much the company planned to invest.
