Business appliance maker Dell China formally opened its new manufacturing operation in Xiamen, which will serve customers in mainland China.
The 594,000-square-foot facility is Dell's second factory in Xiamen and is said to more than double its production capacity in China. The factory uses Dell's build-to-order processes to produce its PowerEdge servers, PowerVault storage systems, Dell Precision workstations, Latitude and Inspiron notebook computers, and OptiPlex and Dimension desktop computers for customers in Japan, South Korea and Hong Kong.
Since the launch of its direct-to-the-customer business in China in 1998, Dell said it has significantly enhanced its presence in the country. In addition to two manufacturing operations in China, Dell has an Enterprise Command Center in Xiamen that provides customers with mission-critical enterprise services, and a global design center in Shanghai. In March, Dell announced an 200 additional jobs at the Shanghai center.
In Dell China's most-recent quarter, product shipments increased 40 percent, double the industry average, and revenue grew 29 percent.
