Lenovo opens US plant

Written by Nick Farrell

Third world industry is our thing

Ever interested in expanding into third world countries, Lenovo will open its first PC production plant in the United States with operations expected to begin in 2013.

The plant will be built in Whitsett, North Carolina, and make Think-branded laptop and desktop PCs, tablets and servers aimed at the U.S. market. The company said that it will create 115 jobs in Whitsett which ten years ago had a population of 686 people and its own horse.

Lenovo has invested in new plants and manufacturing joint ventures in China, Brazil so the US was an obvious place after that. The company is set to overtake the maker of expensive printer ink, HP  later this year as the world's largest PC maker.
