The Acer Brand
The Acer Brand
That's the Acer brand promise. Since we first started 1976, we have cultured a passion for innovation through the development of reliable, user-friendly technology designed to bring out the very best in people. Throughout these years, we have been driven by the continued support and by the extraordinary loyalty of our customers. The constant expansion of Acer led to the most significant group-wide reorganisation in our history. In 2002, Acer Europe, Middle East and South Africa merged to form Acer EMEA under the guidance of Gianfranco Lanci, and branches were opened in every Western European country together with the leading Eastern European markets and also in Dubai and South Africa.
