    Dell to Expand Central Texas Engineering Employment by 500

    Governor Lauds Investment in Professional Jobs, Central Texas Technology Base
    AUSTIN, Texas–Dell plans to hire an additional 500 engineers to work in its Central Texas product development operations as part of its dedication to providing customers the broadest and best product and services portfolio available, the company announced today. Dell will begin hiring immediately.”This year Dell will have the most technically advanced product line in our company’s history,” said Chairman Michael Dell. “The additional development expertise we’re announcing today for our Austin Design Center reflects our concept of Dell 2.0, an initiative to revitalize every part of our business with engineering excellence at its core. No other company in our industry has a greater commitment to innovation in computing,” Mr. Dell said.Speaking at a news conference with Gov. Rick Perry at the Texas Capitol, Mr. Dell said the infusion of engineering talent to the company’s Texas development team — already Dell’s largest — will benefit customers from the datacenter to the living room.”Our engineering teams play a key role in building products and services that set the standard for our industry,” Mr. Dell said.”We’re all moving toward a global, technology-based economy, and thanks to Dell and its undeniable leadership in expanding access to information technology around the world, Texas is at the forefront of that movement,” said Gov. Perry. “By deepening its engineering and employment roots in Central Texas, Dell continues to do the state proud.”Mr. Dell said the decision to add to its Central Texas development team was an easy one because of the company’s robust existing research and development base here and the ability to attract top engineering talent to a region known for its high quality of life.Dell this year has introduced a new generation of servers and desktop computers that deliver greater performance and enhanced energy efficiency, new storage products, new notebook systems and new printers. Dell’s ninth-generation (9G) PowerEdge servers use Intel’s latest Xeon 5100 series processors. The company earlier this month launched Dimension desktop computers with AMD processors and plans to introduce a two-socket and multi-processor server using AMD Opteron processors later this year.”While others in our industry reduce or relocate resources, Dell is making a long-term investment in our competitiveness in Central Texas and the United States,” said Mr. Dell. “As we grow globally, Texas’ business landscape continues to serve as a model for competitiveness and economic development. Gov. Perry and the state’s policymakers deserve credit for maintaining a climate in which companies such as Dell can grow and prosper.”By the end of the fiscal year, Dell will have opened or expanded 14 new manufacturing, call center, and design and development facilities over a two-year period. These expansions include key investments in the top growth markets outside the U.S., including China, India, Germany and Brazil, to ensure that Dell can design, manufacture and provide service close to its customers for the long-term.The engineering hiring planned for the company’s Central Texas development operations is among the series of investments this year to enhance Dell’s design, production and customer service capabilities. Among those investments are:– More than 2,000 new sales and support personnel have been hired in the U.S., including 1,000 people in Nashville; call centers also have been added or expanded in Oklahoma City, Ottawa and Manila
    – Hiring of more than 500 employees at the company’s Winston-Salem, N.C. manufacturing facility
    – A new manufacturing facility in Xiamen, China, doubling the company’s production capacity in that market
    – A 40-percent increase in notebook production and distribution capacity in Malaysia
    – The company’s first manufacturing facility in India, which is expected to begin production in the first half 2007
    – A second European manufacturing facility located in Poland, scheduled to open in the second half of 2007.
