Lenovo’s first own factory in Europe celebrates one year

Since its first own plant in Budapest, Lenovo has shipped one million workstations and servers around the world

Lenovo has manufactured and shipped one million workstations and servers from its custom-built production facilities in Europe, just over a year after going live in Budapest, Hungary.

Lenovo’s Budapest plant opened in June 2022 to support customers across Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) and address infrastructure needs for high-end PC workstations, storage systems and servers.

As of June 2023, the factory has provided solutions to more than a thousand customers in 69 countries, while its scale and pace of operations have accelerated over the past year, as the company has indicated in a press release.

This factory has allowed the technology firm to distribute one million units, a figure that represents “a sample of the internal and external collaboration” that has taken place in the last year between employees and customers, as pointed out by the Lenovo Factory manager, Szabolcs Zolyomi.

“We have been able to respond to customer needs more effectively, with greater efficiency and control over product development and supply chain operations, all while continuing to uphold our commitment to sustainability and supporting the local community”, added the manager.

Lenovo explains that it built the Budapest manufacturing facility with sustainability in mind, and since its inauguration it has improved thermal insulation, completed the installation of lighting sensor systems, and optimized the use of waste heat from air compressors.

The Hungary factory is part of Lenovo’s global production network, distributed among 35 locations in eight regions to serve customers in 180 markets, including Argentina, Brazil, China, Hungary, India, Japan, Mexico, and the United States.

Since then, it has provided added capabilities to customers running some of the largest supercomputers in Europe, including the Barcelona Supercomputing Center in Spain, the Leibniz Supercomputing Center in Germany and SURF in the Netherlands.
