ROCHESTER, Minn. (AP) IBM says it's moving most production from its Rochester plant to Mexico and New York state.

IBM spokesman Scott Cook says manufacturing of its Power Systems, PureSystems and PureFlex Systems servers will be moved to Guadalajara, Mexico. Refurbishing of used IBM machines will be moved to Poughkeepsie, N.Y.

Cook won't say how many jobs will be lost in Rochester when the manufacturing shift is complete next year.

Cook says the move is about creating the best possible infrastructure" for the company. IBM manufactures and markets computer hardware and software and is headquartered in Armonk, New York.
