As a General Services Administration schedule holder, Lenovo does comply with all of the terms and conditions of the General Services Administration procurement, including the requirement to supply Trade Act Compliant product for all PC hardware purchased. Trade Act Compliant products must either be manufactured or significantly altered in a Trade Act Compliant country. Lenovo has been manufacturing Trade Compliant Product since 1984 and currently manufactures in Monterrey, Mexico.
The Monterrey, Mexico manufacturing plant first opened in 2002 as the main location to produce IBM ThinkCentre desktops for North American customers. In 2007, Lenovo decided to expand its manufacturing in Monterrey by building a new facility that would allow Lenovo to add additional product lines and increase overall capacity. (From 1995 - 2007 IBM / Lenovo manufactured TAA ThinkPad notebooks in Raleigh, North Carolina. By 2007 the US Government’s increased demand put significant pressure on manufacturing capacity capabilities and the decision was made to move TAA notebook manufacturing to Mexico when the new facility opened.)
The Monterrey site today is a 263,000 square foot facility and manufactures five (5) million units per year. It is the hub for all North American ThinkCentre Desktops, ThinkServers, ThinkStation workstations, as well as Lenovo’s TAA notebook ThinkPad products.
