ABIT Factory Tour

Filed under
Hardware

Introduction

ABIT factory, called Rolly, is located in SuZhou city (the correct pronunciation is "su-jou"), around 62.5 miles (100 Km) east from Shanghai. SuZhou is a small town for Chinese standards, with 1 million inhabitants and its main attraction is their gardens, over 2,000 spread all over the city.

Due to the political problemas between Taiwan and China, ABIT factory cannot be named ABIT. Because of that, its official name is Rolly. Built in 1999, this factory is in charge of manufacturing all ABIT products. Before this factory was built ABIT products were manufactured in an old ABIT factory in Taiwan, which no longer exists. They also manufacture products for other companies, like Canon and Yamaha - but never motherboards for other companies.

ABIT has a research and development center (R&D) in Rolly, where some of ABIT products are developed.
