Taiwan MIM producers faces in-house competition
March 1, 2007
One of Taiwan’s largest producers of parts for computers and mobiles phones has made the decision to go in-house for its requirements for MIM components thereby making a severe dent in the sales of established MIM businesses in the country.
Foxconn International Co Ltd (FIH) is following the initiative of Chenming Mold Corp which set up in-house MIM facilities 3 years ago to produce MIM parts for computers and mobile phones, and Shin Zu Shing Co Ltd which started production of MIM parts in Taiwan in 2006. Shin Zu Shing is the largest mobile phone hinge maker in Taiwan.
Foxconn is reported to be setting up its MIM plant in Canton, China, to supply parts to Motorola, Nokia, Apple, HP, Dell and others.
