PC maker Lenovo has closed down its Baddi plant with a view to rationalize its operations in the country. The plant, set up in 2007, has production capacity of about a million units and employed about 20 people.
From April last year, all production for Lenovo has been undertaken at its second plant in Pondicherry. “With demand slowing down, it was decided that it is best to shut the operations at our Baddi unit and build capacity at our unit in Pondicherry,” Lenovo India Managing Director Amar Babu said. The company has a manufacturing unit in Pondicherry with a capacity of three million units of desktops and laptops, and has a staff of over 100 people
