As previously reported, the Round Rock, Texas, PC maker is indeed eyeing a spot in North Carolina for a plant that would serve its Americas business, according to David Frink, a Dell spokesman.
"We're obviously looking at North Carolina, and we've previously announced we're intent on building another manufacturing facility to support our growing Americas business," Frink said Tuesday. The factory would mainly serve customers in the United States and Canada.
Dell hasn't just been talking about expansion in the United States, however. The company also sees the need to build plants in Europe and Asia over the next few years to support its push to gain market share in PCs and servers, Kevin Rollins, Dell's CEO, said in a recent interview with CNET News.com.
