PC manufacturer Lenovo is looking to build a $10 million distribution facility near Greensboro.

A Lenovo spokesperson confirmed to the Greensboro News & Record that Lenovo is considering a site near the intersections of Interstates 40 and 85 for the new plant.

Picking a facility and adding jobs in the U.S. would run counter to other Lenovo’s moves, including the layoffs of several hundred former IBM workers and moving those jobs to foreign countries. Lenovo, which recently fell to fourth place from third in world PC sales, bought IBM’s personal computing division inn 2005 and chose to build a new headquarters inn Morrisville.

Lenovo, which also reportedly considered building the facility near its headquarters in Morrisville, is seeking $154,000 in incentives from Guilford County commissioners, according to FOX8 News in the Triad. The incentive package will be considered at a commissioners meeting on June 21.

If built, the facility would create between 40 and 50 jobs.

The plant would be both for distribution and manufacture of PCs.

Lenovo also is considering sites in Kentucky, South Carolina and Tennessee.

"I’m not prepared to reveal any further details on that right now," company spokesman Ray Gorman told the News & Record. "We’re still in negotiations."

The facility would be located in a 1,400 acre industrial park and cover some 200,000 square feet. According to the newspaper report, Lenovo is interested in the site “because of its strong transportation network and the availability of a graded site off Interstates 40/ 85 that’s ready for quick construction.

The newspaper quoted a developer as saying the facility is on the fast track to completion if the deal is approved.

"This developer is under an incredibly tight time schedule to have this building done," Richard Beard , a partner in the real estate firm managing the Rock Creek Center, told the News & Record.
