The plant already employs more than 1,000 full-time employees in a variety of engineering, managerial and operational positions, and the number of employees will continue to grow as the facility moves toward full capacity.
According to the announcement, the strong infrastructure, skilled workforce and Hungary in the middle of Europe provide the perfect location for Lenovo’s first European manufacturing plant, and part of the investment was supported by the National Investment Agency (HIPA) with local government incentives, MTI writes.
The nearly 50,000-square-foot new facility is one of Lenovo’s largest manufacturing facilities. The production line is capable of producing more than 1,000 servers and 4,000 workstations per day, all tailored specifically to customer needs.
The new building, built specifically for this purpose, is equipped with 0.5 megawatt solar panels. Local manufacturing of the devices significantly reduces the delivery time and distance of the products, thus providing more efficient and sustainable freight options. All of this, combined with innovative manufacturing processes such as Lenovo’s patented low-temperature soldering process, helps the company meet its climate targets.
Lenovo is a $ 70 billion-a-year global technology company in China that employs 75,000 people worldwide and serves millions of customers a day in 180 markets.
