T5 1PBLK2 - Patently Informative
BrightWire, a business-to-business resource for portfolio managers, is reporting this morning that Taiwan's United Daily News is reporting that Apple has chosen Taiwan-based Chenming Mold Industry as a second supplier of metal injection moldings (MIM). Apple's main supplier at the moment is Hon Hai Precision Industry. The report states that shipments from Chenming Mold began sometime in October. The source claims that Chenming also aims to provide similar products to Apple relating to the production of the iPad and iPad mini in 2013. This isn't much of a surprise considering that Apple is preparing for explosive growth for the iPad mini in 2013.
