Lenovo Group is aiming at growth in central China with a new research and development base in Wuhan.
Lenovo opened the state-of-the-art research, development, sales operations and production facility for smartphone and tablet products last week. The 200,000 square-meter facility has production lines, as well as sales operations and an R&D center that expands Lenovo's research and development capabilities for tablets and smartphones at a time when demand for such products is at an all-time high.
As a major transportation hub in central China, Wuhan is a rapidly growing, dynamic city that has already attracted a number of major investments from Fortune 500 companies seeking to leverage its local talent and strategic position as a logistics center. With its investment in the Wuhan facility, Lenovo is also fostering the high tech ecosystem in Wuhan and the economic development of Central China.
In addition to its new Wuhan facility, Lenovo also manufactures products at its own facilities in Argentina, India, Mexico, Hungary, Brazil, Japan, the U.S. and multiple China locations. The company has opened five new manufacturing sites around the world since 2011, and acquired two other facilities through joint ventures.
