Dell spokesman David Frink said Friday the Texas-based company has seen improved demand for personal computers and will keep production humming in Winston-Salem until early January.
The company announced last October it would close the plant within three months, eliminating 900 workers.
The massive computer assembly plant was offered more than $300 million in incentives to choose the North Carolina site in 2004. Most state incentives were never paid, and Dell repaid local governments $26 million in upfront incentives.
