IBM Opens $30 Million Server Manufacturing Plant
POUGHKEEPSIE, N.Y. (AP) — IBM Corp. says it has opened a new $30 million manufacturing facility at its Poughkeepsie, N.Y., site to produce the next generation of mainframes and servers.
The Hudson Valley facility officially opened Tuesday and will produce IBM's next line of System z mainframe computers and high-end Power Systems servers.
Armonk, N.Y.-based IBM does not expect to add any jobs at the site.
The 56,000-square-foot facility will be built inside an existing structure at IBM's 400-acre site in Poughkeepsie. The company says it features innovations to conserve energy and improve the manufacturing process.
Mike Desens, Poughkeepsie senior location executive, says the facility underscores IBM's long-term commitment to New York state and the mid-Hudson Valley.
