Who makes HP computers, monitors, printers, laptops
HP company structure
A bit of recent history about HP: in 2015, there was a significant restructuring of the company. As a result, two independent companies were formed.
HP Inc – deals with the consumer segment of electronics (laptops, desktops, monitors, printers).
Hewlett Packard Enterprise – enterprise equipment (servers, storage systems, routers, access points).
In this article, we will look at manufacturing sites that produce products for residential consumers and small offices, HP inc. In the mid-1980s, the company decided to manufacture only some of its products and use suppliers’ services. As proven to be the right decision, HP gradually removed all of its factories. As of 2019, 95% of its products are produced by seven outsourced, third-party manufacturers (OEM, ODM manufacturers). HP has focused on developing, selling, and marketing its products.
So when you buy HP products, you purchase a product made by someone other than HP, which only has the HP logo. In most cases, the product design is also developed by another company. HP orders a supplier to design several models, such as laptops with certain features, get the finished product, test the production volumes, and organizes an advertising campaign to promote the product. The company’s sales departments and offices in different countries sell the finished devices through the distribution sales chain. This is how a leptotene or other device comes to your city, and you can buy it.
Who makes HP consumer electronics products
The products are primarily designed in Taiwan and China by large ODM (original design companies), and these same companies produce the finished product. There is nothing unusual or wrong about this; take Apple. Apple operates under the same scheme. This approach to production significantly reduces development and production costs, ultimately making the final product much cheaper.
It could be that HP and other brands’ monitors are assembled in the same factory. One assembly line works for HP, while another may produce monitors from another company. This approach has allowed HP to reduce manufacturing costs significantly. It has eliminated the need to manage assembly lines, factories, and component logistics, so it is beneficial for HP not to have to be in charge of the production stage.
Now a little bit about which companies make consumer electronics for HP. The information is based on the HP supplier list.
