An in-depth investigation has been opened into proposed investment aid worth €52.7m for Dell Products Poland (DPP) to build a new plant for the production of desktops, notebooks and servers. DPP is a Polish subsidiary of the US computer corporation, Dell Inc. The proposed plant is to be established in Lódz, which is designated as an EU regional disadvantaged area. The project is expected to create up to 3,000 jobs in the area. However, the European Commission (Commission) wants to take a closer look at the scheme to verify whether the regional guidelines have been respected and whether the aid provides an incentive to the company to make the investment or whether it might have occurred otherwise. For the moment, the Commission has indicated it has not formed a definitive view on the issue.
