Tulip Computers NV has firmed up its plans to make personal computers in the Far East and now says it plans to establish assembly plants in China and India by the end of December and full manufacturing plants in both countries by the end of 1996. The good word comes from the Dutch company’s Tulip Computers Asia Ltd chief executive Hans Hartsuiker. Tulip plans to assemble about 30,000 computers in Shenzhen and 40,000 in India in 1996, and to manufacture up to 75,000 in either Peking or Shanghai, China and 60,000 in India in 1997. The company forecast sales this year of 8,000 to 10,000 in China and at least 10,000 in India, he added. It also plans to establish 18 showrooms and three integration centres in China, Hartsuiker said. The centres, similar to what Tulip has in Europe, would each contain 100 to 150 computers so that potential customers could try out network software and configurations; Tulip has offices in Peking and Shanghai and regional headquarters in Hong Kong.
