Daewoo pumps up PC production in Europe

Gets by, with a little help from its affiliates

Daewoo is to outsource PC assembly in Europe to an Korean affiliate. Daewoo said the move would reduce its PC building costs in Europe by half. Currently it relies on third party companies to assemble its PCs in Europe. The unnamed Korean affiliate has set up a assembly plant near Paris, capable of handling 30,000 PCs a month, as its part of the Daewoo deal. Daewoo aims to sell one million PCs in Europe this year, and two million in 2000. ®
