Lenovo to open plants in Mexico and India

thinkpad.gifLenovo, the world’s third-largest computer maker by shipments, said it would begin assembling computers at a new facility in Mexico and India with an investment of $30 million. This is a huge effort by lenovo to take on rivals Hewlett-Packard Co. and Dell Inc. in key markets outside its home turf of China.

ThinkPad (formally IBM owned) and ThinkCentre continue to offer award-winning notebook computers and desktops by Lenovo.

The smaller plant at Baddi, in Himachal Pradesh, India, could start churning out PCs as soon as September and will eventually have a capacity of two million computers annually, Lenovo said. That plant will have 350 employees and supply the growing market in India. Having a plant in the north of India complements the company’s existing plant in Pondicherry in the southeast of the country, enabling Lenovo to reach around 95 percent of the country’s inhabitants.
