Lenovo Laptops Will Not Be Built in Taiwan

Contrary to earlier reports that say otherwise, Lenovo has gone on the record to say that they will not be outsourcing any portion of their business to Taiwan. Without getting too far into the politics of whether Taiwan is technically a part of China or not, there were rumors floating around that Lenovo was considering getting a plant in Taiwan for the purposes of producing ThinkPad notebooks.

I’m not sure really what would be the motivation to do so, because the labour and other associated costs in Mainland China would surely be lower than the equivalent in Taiwan. It didn’t make any sense to me and I guess it didn’t make any sense to the ThinkPad maker either.

In the company rep’s own words: “No… the press reports that note Lenovo is moving ThinkPad production from China to Taiwan are incorrect. There are no plans to change ThinkPad production.” This doesn’t necessarily mean that they won’t be doing something in Taiwan, but it does mean that you won’t be finding a ThinkPad with a “Made in Taiwan” sticker on it any time soon.
