Rapidly expanding PC maker Lenovo is planning to create 115 jobs in Guilford County, where workers will build Think-brand notebook and laptop computers, according to the office of Gov. Bev Perdue.
Perdue's office disclosed Monday afternoon that Lenovo intends to announce on Tuesday that it is planning to expand its operations in Guilford County, where the company already has a fulfillment and distribution center.
Lenovo last week alerted the media that it planned an announcement that would have have "an important impact on the state of North Carolina and Guilford County," but offered no details.
The company's press conference is scheduled for 2:15 p.m. Tuesday at its executive headquarters in Morrisville, where it employs about 2,000 workers. Perdue and a host of other public officials are scheduled to be on hand for the announcement.
Lenovo, which is based in China, is the world's second-largest PC maker but is on the verge of moving into the No. 1 spot thanks to sales that have far outpaced the competition for more than two years.
Lenovo officials couldn't immediately be reached for additional comment.
