We’re continuously working to create a brighter future for ourselves – and for the world of technology.

It’s this type of attitude that’s made us as successful as we are – and enables us to grow even more. Throughout the history of our company, we’ve executed some of the most famous acquisitions in the industry – from buying the IBM PC Division more than a decade ago to our most recent acquisitions of Motorola Mobility and the IBM System x server business.
