Lenovo to employ 340 people at technical centre

CHINA's leading IT company Lenovo plans to set up a new technical-support centre in Bratislava that would create 340 new jobs by the end of this year, announced Milko Van Duijl, Lenovo general manager for Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) at a news conference in Bratislava on April 20.

Slovak employees will handle orders and supply chains, along with client, financial and technical support. According to Milko, 60 percent of the new jobs will be given to people with a university education, TASR reported.

Though located in the Slovak capital, employees will be required to have the necessary language skills, as the company will provide support in more than 28 foreign languages.

"It's very important for the Slovak economy that Lenovo has decided to establish its new support centre for the EMEA region in Slovakia. Firstly, it shows appreciation for the Slovak business environment, and secondly, the Slovak Government is fulfilling its strategy for creating a knowledge-based economy in Slovakia," said Finance Minister Ivan Mikloš.

Lenovo is the third biggest PC and notebook dealer in the world, with a 7.5-percent share of the global market. It sells around 12 million PCs per year, and the company's regional headquarters have been located in Slovakia since August 1, 2005, employing 70 people.
