Dell plans to lay off 1,900 workers at its flagship manufacturing plant in Limerick, Ireland, and transfer production to an existing facility in Poland and to third-party OEM partners, according to Dell. The move is part of a $3 billion cost reduction plan Dell announced last year. Dell has had its Ireland operations for 18 years.

An initial layoff will occur in April and the full transition is expected to be completed by January 2010, according to Dell. The company’s Global Innovation Solutions Center and EMEA Command Center will remain in Limerick and Dell will keep sales, marketing and support personnel in Dublin.
