U.S.-based business appliance maker Dell Inc. announced that its Indian subsidiary plans to employ 10,000 people by the end of 2005.

Kevin Rollins, Dell's president and CEO, said the company's global product group, a global development unit, sales and service operations, and call centers in India currently employ 8,000 people.

"By the end of this year our team should be 10,000 strong and it has been growing consistently," Mr. Rollins said. "The talent base and capability here is second to none."

In addition, Mr. Rollins said Dell had revised its revenue target from U.S. $60 billion to $80 billion to be achieved in the next 3 to 4 years.

"It is turning Dell from a personal computer-maker into a broad-based information technology supply company handling customers, consumers, global corporations and offering opportunities for a country like India," Mr. Rollins said. "We are a global company and we seek the best talent in every region. India has been a wonderful source of that. We will move into more cities in the future."

Mr. Rollins said Dell will not evolve into a full-fledged IT services company. "Our strategy is to stay close to our hardware and add to that menu over time. We know our hardware well and then provide outsourcing around it with a small 'o'," he said.

Mr. Rollins said the fastest growing segment for the company was servers, printing and imaging, and flat panel products. "Fifty percent of the company's revenues now come from outside the U.S., mainly from Asia, Japan and Europe," he said. (AFX)
