Digitmes is reporting that three Taiwan-based flexible PCB manufacturers – Flexium Interconnect, Zhen Ding Technology and Career Technology have managed to secure lucrative contracts with Apple for components of the next-generation iPhone.
As a result, the companies are now getting ready for mass production of new models in July and August.
“Flexium and Zhen Ding started producing in small volume FPCBs for use in the new iPhone series in June and shipments have gradually expanded since July which will boost revenues at both companies,” Patty Wang and Jessie Shen report for Digitimes. “Career Tech, which sees a relatively small portion of company revenues generated from the orders placed by Apple, will also benefit from the new iPhone launch.”
“In addition, Flexium in June completed capacity expansion to meet anticipated demand from Apple,” Wang and Shen explain. “Flexium has ramped up its production capacity by about 30%, which will bring the company’s total revenue opportunity for all of 2013 about 20-30% higher than a year ago.”
