When it comes to supply chain companies in the tech device world, sometimes one big deal is all it takes to move to the next level. A contract with a top company, such as Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) or Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) is a very big deal. This is particularly true in today’s day and age with these tech companies growing at a rapid pace and always looking for a way to outdo its competitors.
Wintek is one of those supply chain companies that is going to benefit big time from its business with Google and Amazon.
The touch panel maker is known as one of the best in the world, and according to Digitimes the company is expected to reach revenue of nearly $268 million during the third quarter of 2013.
This is due in large part to its business with Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN).
Here is a brief excerpt, explaining how much volume Wintek is going to be pushing in the near future:
“Wintek has reportedly begun shipping touch panels for Google’s next generation Nexus 7 as well as Amazon’s 7-inch Kindle Fire HD as of June 2013 and will continue doing so throughout July and August when Wintek’s’ shipments are expected to peak, said the sources.
Touch panel shipments for the Google Nexus 7 are expected to be around 500,000 units a month as of July, the sources said, adding that monthly touch panel shipments for the Kindle Fire will be around 300,000-400,000 in the third quarter for a total of about 6-7 million units in 2013.”
As you can see, Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) are doing its part in keeping Wintek at the top of its industry.
Of course, this isn’t meant to take anything away from Wintek. The company is one of the most reliable there is, allowing Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) to rest easy when it comes to the organization in charge of its touch panel manufacturing.
This is an especially big win for Wintek, being that the company was once also a big part of Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s supply chain. However, the company is beginning to be phased out.
With Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) and Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) pushing it to new heights, Wintek has to be feeling good about the future.
