Lenovo ramping up jobs at PC manufacturing in NC

Wednesday, May 29th, 2013


WHITSETT, N.C. (AP) – Lenovo Group is ramping up its first American manufacturing operation for personal computers.

The No. 2 computer maker said Tuesday its new production line near Greensboro is on track to meet its hiring target of about 115 jobs by the end of June.

Lenovo is based in China but has executive headquarters in Morrisville, where about 2,000 work. The company bought IBM’s PC business there in 2005.

Production at the PC manufacturing plant in Whitsett has been under way for most of this year, but the company is marking its move with a ribbon cutting next week.

Lenovo said last week its sales of desktop and laptop PCs both declined 2 percent in the latest quarter, but profit rose 90 percent as sales of smartphones and mobile computing technology expanded.
