Packard Bell NEC is to open a new plant in Scotland which will take over the company's build-to-order PC manufacturing operations from Angers in France.
Packard Bell is to spend #26 million on the investment, which will create 825 jobs. The company will also receive financial backing from Locate in Scotland, a government body established to help boost the local economy by creating employment.
The plant should be operational from 1 August. Neither Packard Bell nor Locate in Scotland would reveal Locate's financial input.
"We considered various European locations and negotiated with Locate in Scotland for a favourable package," a Packard Bell spokesman said.
Workers at the French site will not be laid off, but re-employed within the company, he said.
