Lenovo

Our journey began humbly in 1984 at a guardhouse in China, where Legend Holdings formed with an investment of just RMB 200,000 (US$ 25,000). In 1988, we opened for business in Hong Kong and, in 1996, became China’s largest PC company. We were renamed Lenovo in 2004 and the following year, we acquired the Personal Computer Division from IBM.

In July 2014, Motorola Mobility was acquired from Google, positioning Lenovo as the world’s #3 maker of smartphones. In the same year, we acquired the IBM x86 server business, instantly making us the #3 global provider of x86-based server hardware, software, and services.

Today, Lenovo is a US$45 billion multinational company with 55,000 employees serving customers in over 160 countries. Ranked #286 on the Fortune 500 list, we are proud to be the world’s largest PC vendor. Our portfolio also includes workstations, servers, storage solutions, IT management software, smart TVs, tablets, smartphones, and even apps.

As the world becomes faster, more demanding, and more competitive, our business has expanded beyond PCs. Through continually innovating, we enable our customers to challenge and inspire everyone around them. And help keep things moving forward in a more interesting way.
