Acer was founded in 1976 by Stan Shih and his wife Carolyn Yeh in Taiwan, with its headquarters in New Taipei City. Acer was originally called Multitech and in the early days, the primary focus was distributing electronic parts. Over the years, not only did the name change to Acer (which happened in 1976), but the company’s focus also changed. Today at Acer you can purchase laptops, PCs, monitors, tablets and computing accessories for the home, for gaming and for work use - whatever IT products you need, Acer’s bound to have them in abundance! Acer is known across the globe, and you can purchase its products in over 160 countries.
