Lenovo expanding U.S. operations
Lenovo has leased 10,000 square feet of office space in Danbury, Conn., but the world's largest PC maker isn't ruling out further expansion in North Carolina.
A company spokesman said the company's new offices, which will allow it to work closer to customers in the Northeast, would not impact North Carolina operations, WRALTechWire.com reports. Lenovo has not announced how many or what type of jobs it will add in Connecticut.
Lenovo's pending $2.3 billion acquisition of IBM's x86 server unit will give it about 7,500 additional employees globally and is expected to double its employment in Research Triangle Park. The company now employs about 2,200 at its North American headquarters in Morrisville and 300 at a production and fulfillment center in Whitsett.
