Dell returns $1.5 million in incentives to NC
RALEIGH, N.C. — Computer giant Dell Inc. has returned more than $1.5 million to the state after the company announced that it was closing a large computer assembly plant in central North Carolina.
The state Department of Commerce said the company has fully returned grant payments from 2006 and 2007. Officials in Winston-Salem have said the company is also in the process of repaying $26 million in local incentives.
Officials had promised more than $300 million in state and local incentives to lure Dell to the region. The company announced earlier this month that it would close the four-year-old facility by the end of January. More than 900 workers will lose their jobs.
