Taiwanese company that may give up China
Year Established: 1976
Headquarters: Taipei, Taiwan
Parent: Hongqi Corporation
Acer is a Taiwanese multinational electronics corporation that, in 2017, was the sixth-largest computer vendor in the world with a global market share of 6.5%. The company lost major market share due to lack of innovation and because their primary business was with common consumers instead of corporate and government agencies.
Acer does produce many of its products in China, but they plan to shift their base to a different country in the near future. If you already own an Acer device, chances are that it might have some connection with China. Today, most of their tech is made in Taiwan but make sure you check the manufacturing address before you buy one of their products.
