Any company that does business with Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) will find itself in good position to grow. The same holds true with those who are involved with Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) BlackBerry.
While there are many suppliers out there, not all of them have the good fortune to lock up deals with the biggest tech companies in the world. Fortunately for Catcher Technology, one of the most well known metal-alloy chassis makers in the world, they are in good position moving forward.
This company is part of both the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) BlackBerry supply chain. Not only does this mean big revenue for the company, but it also means plenty of growth. On top of this, it allows the company to hire more employees to ensure that it can keep up with demand.
Here is an excerpt from a recent Digitimes piece, showing just how much Catcher is growing with the help of Apple and BlackBerry:
“Metal-alloy chassis maker Catcher Technology expects consolidated revenues for the second half of 2013 to hike on year by 30% due to shipments for the new-generation iPad mini and orders from new clients, company chairman Hung Shui-shu said at the 2013 shareholder meeting on June 13.”
Thirty percent is a nice jump for the company, when taking a look at its revenue from last year. As noted by company chairman Hung Shui-shu, this is due in large part to its involvement with the production of the next generation Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad.
Where does Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) BlackBerry come into play? Here is what you need to know:
“Catcher produces metal-alloy chassis for notebooks, smartphones and tablets. For smartphone chassis, Catcher is a supplier for Sony, BlackBerry and HTC, Hung noted. Although 2013 global demand for notebooks is forecast to decline 10%, Catcher expects its notebook chassis shipments in 2013 to significantly increase due to a higher proportion of notebooks using metal-alloy chassis, Hung said.”
This is big news for Catcher Technology. It is also good news for Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) and Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) BlackBerry, as it gives them a company on their supply chain that they can trust. In today’s day and age, quality is more important than ever and Catcher seems to be on the same page as far as that is concerned.
