Thread: Apple Notebook Uni-body Casing Supplier Shuts Down Plant, Could Affect Macbook Supply

    Default Apple Notebook Uni-body Casing Supplier Shuts Down Plant, Could Affect Macbook Supply


    Apple’s supply chain took a hit this weekend as a plant responsible for manufacturing the company’s uni-body laptop housings was shutdown.

    Authorities forced Catcher Technology to shut down their factory in Eastern China due to “strange odors” coming from the plant. The plant produces 60% of Apple’s uni-body Macbook Pro and MacBook Air enclosures which could result in a 40% decrease in shipments of the notebooks during November.

    Allen Horng, Catcher Technology president, acknowledged that total shipments would fall 20% in October and could affect November shipments if the government delays clearing the plant for operation. How this could affect the rumored imminent MacBook Pro refresh is still unclear. But, Horng isn’t sugar coating the plants problems.

    "Shipments to our customers will inevitably be affected. We already asked them to make adjustments to their (casings) procurement."

    Catcher Technology also produces casings for Acer, Dell, Lenovo, Sony, and Apple’s iMac.

    Kind of a bad time to have production go down. Right when everyone is buying for Christmas.

    Since when did Chinese officials get so concerned with "odors"?
