Dell closing NC plant sooner than expected

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Computer maker Dell Inc. says it will close a North Carolina plant sooner than expected and lay off employees in October and November.

Spokesman David Frink didn’t give an exact date for the closure. The plant had 400 workers this spring, but Frink didn’t immediately respond Friday to a request for how many are currently employed there.

Dell announced that the plant would close last year, but extended the date four times.

In April, Dell said it would likely close its Winston-Salem operation in January.

The computer assembly plant was offered more than $300 million in incentives to choose the North Carolina site in 2004. Most state incentives were never paid, and Dell repaid local governments $26 million in upfront incentives.

Dell sux. They came to NC to open a sweat shop. Other than the kiss asses in the managemnt dept. That is what is wrong with them now. They are taught to show favortizm, The management is raciest, and It is a true fact that they put dummies in positions that do not have a clue. I hope the lying Jim Vice, Ricky Boyd, and the other group leads, along with Bessie the accident investegator gets what they deserve on down the road. I hope you never have to work for me, because your name is mudd. Come on lick ol mickey, and get what you deserve. along with Mark (baldy) thinks his shit does not stink. and lets not forget Seceret Samual Spearman who is a raciest 100%.

I hope to see you soon poor excuse for management. So lets go out and have a Quality, and a productive day… What a joke JV.
