Lenovo has officially opened the doors to its first in-house manufacturing facility in Europe. Based in Üllő, Hungary, the factory focuses primarily on building server infrastructure, storage systems and high-end PC workstations used by customers throughout the Europe, Middle East and Africa region.
Extending Lenovo’s international manufacturing operations, the investment represents significant economic potential for both the private and public sectors in Hungary, with increased production capacity, greater potential for collaboration with local vendors and the creation of new job openings. The site already employs over 1,000 full-time staff in a variety of engineering, management and operational roles, with numbers continuing to increase as the facility moves towards full capacity.
Strong infrastructure, skilled labour and a location at the centre of Europe made Hungary the natural location for Lenovo’s first European in-house manufacturing facility. In addition, part of Lenovo’s investment has been supported with local government incentives through the Hungarian Investment Promotion Agency (HIPA).
“With our manufacturing facility in Hungary officially open, we’ve reached a profound milestone in our global manufacturing network optimisation and evolution,” said Francois Bornibus, Senior Vice President and EMEA President, at Lenovo. “Hungary’s well-connected location puts us much closer to our European customers so that we can fulfil and sustain their needs while remaining at the forefront of innovation.”Click below to share this article
