Lenovo Opens Manufacturing Plant in U.S

Lenovo Opens Manufacturing Plant in U.S

Most American companies outsource their manufacturing to China because labor there is skilled, but cheaper. However, one Chinese company has just differentiated itself from its competitors by getting some of its products built (or assembled) in the U.S.

The Lenovo Group has recently announced the opening of a manufacturing facility in North Carolina which, according to the BGR, gives Lenovo the advantage of being able to ship devices out to American consumers faster.

BGR also reported Lenovo's North American President Jay Parker saying that while wages in the American plant are higher, the company saves on costs by importing its components for the devices it manufactures in the US, rather than making them entirely in-house.

It's currently unclear for now if US made Lenovo products would be pricier, or have better quality, but having devices manufactured in the US is definitely something that some other tech giants are looking towards at the moment.

Earlier in the month, Google stated that its upcoming Motorola Moto X smartphones would be made in the U.S, while Apple's new Mac Pro will also be assembled in the U.S.
