Wei Guan, Senior Vice President of Lenovo Group and Head of Global Supply Chain, summarized three key features of the base: using the most advanced technology, forming replicable and scalable solutions, and incubating innovative ideas and products.

The new manufacturing base is Lenovo Group’s smart factory with the highest complexity of production. It will provide more than 50 types of products with nearly 100,000 configurations.

In addition to traditional businesses such as desktops, workstations, servers, high-performance computing clusters, monitors, accessories, and field replaceable units (FRUs), the base also incubates various intelligent products, such as smart modules, intelligent devices, wearable devices, smart home appliances, and other emerging businesses, covering the global markets, according to the company.
