Lenovo adopts Japanese-style quality checks at PC plants

Stricter inspections put in place in China for Japan-bound products

Lenovo's plant in Yamagata Prefecture, Japan, is able to assemble a large variety of products in small quantities.

TOKYO -- Lenovo Group has introduced rigorous Japanese-style product quality checks at factories in China to address complaints from customers in Japan.

The Chinese computer maker has brought some of the proprietary inspection procedures developed at a plant in Japan's Yamagata Prefecture to six factories in China, including ones in Shenzhen and near Shanghai, and added them for laptop and desktop computers slated for shipment to Japan. The inspections now include ensuring that stickers are placed straight and that screens are free of fingerprint marks.
