WARSAW. JUNE 16. INTERFAX CENTRAL EUROPE - Chinese computer maker Lenovo Group's Polish unit, which began selling Lenovo-branded computers in April, aims to become the number one player on the Polish market by 2010, Lenovo Technology Polska's president Marek Borowka told Interfax.
"We want to be the leader of the Polish and the world's PC market by 2010," he said.
Borowka said Lenovo will increase its market share on the Polish PC market by enlarging its products portfolio, developing customer services, and greater integration of its business partners.
Borowka said that Poland's market plays an important role in the company's global strategy.
"We regard Poland as a fast growing and very promising market that is important in Lenovo's world strategy."
The Polish branch of Lenovo Group began selling Lenovo-branded computers in Poland in April 2006 but Borowka said that it's still too early to reveal sales figures.
"Our products were warmly welcomed by our business partners and customers," he said.
Currently Lenovo has about 2,500 Polish business partners and 19 partner stores.
"We are still working to develop our distribution channels," he said.
Borowka added that the newly launched Lenovo 3000, directed mainly at SMEs and students, had been well received.
"We already heard that Lenovo 3000 got its place on the Polish market."

IBM and Lenovo completed the deal on May 1, 2005. As a result of the acquisition Lenovo's product line includes the ThinkVision, ThinkPad, ThinkVantage, ThinkCenter, Aptiva and NetVista.
Lenovo's executive headquarters are in New York with principal operations in Beijing, China, and Raleigh, USA.
