Lenovo will open its first PC production plant in the United States with operations expected to begin in 2013.
The Whitsett, North Carolina, facility will manufacture Think-branded laptop and desktop PCs, tablets and servers aimed at the US market, Lenovo said in a statement this week.
Lenovo, the world's number two PC maker, did not provide any investment figures but said it would create 115 jobs.
Over the past two years, Lenovo has invested in new plants and manufacturing joint ventures in China, Brazil and now the US to produce PCs and mobile Internet devices such as smartphones, it said.
Analysts have said Lenovo is set to overtake Hewlett Packard later this year as the world's largest PC maker.
