Tech giants such as Apple and Google have been increasingly shifting their production to San Francisco.
Now, Dell has announced plans to bring its tech to the Bay Area, with plans to hire 1,000 people to help its San Francisco headquarters and build a second factory.
Dell announced the new jobs Thursday in a news release.
The company is already building out its first San Francisco production facility, and the new facility will allow the company to more easily build out the company’s supply chain, said Dan McLean, Dell’s vice president of human resources.
The two factories will produce laptops and other electronics products.
McLean said the company is in talks with companies about manufacturing components for its products in the Bay area.
Dedicated to creating the best products for customers and creating value for Dell customers, Dell will hire 1.5 million people over the next three years, according to the news release, which did not disclose details about the number of employees.
The company also plans to expand its manufacturing base to other locations.
McLaverty said the move to the San Francisco area will allow Dell to create “a more robust supply chain” and provide employees with greater flexibility to make their own choices about where to work.
McLaren said he has always believed Dell should be in Silicon Valley, where the company has its headquarters.
He added that Dell’s new San Francisco manufacturing facility will make the company more agile and more responsive to customer needs.
