At a time when most companies are outsourcing their manufacturing to outside countries, Lenovo surprisingly decides to establish a US manufacturing base in Whitsett, N.C., near Greensboro.

The new plant is set to build their ThinkPad and ThinkCentre laptops, desktops, tablets, engineering workstations and servers that are bound for domestic businesses, government and education customers, as well as consumers. The move is set to create 115 new manufacturing jobs in North Carolina.

The new manufacturing line, which will reside within Lenovo’s 240,000 US distribution center in Whitsett, N.C., is under construction and scheduled to open early 2013.
