Wingtech, Apple’s new darling, would now manufacture MacBooks

The Chinese wingtech seems to be back in the small papers of Apple. In record time, this supplier has moved from the production of isolated components to the mass production of Mac Minis. Even more recently, Wingtech reportedly started MacBook production at its Kunming factory. A supply chain source reportedly told the Nikkei Asia site that “Wingtech is one of the few Chinese technology vendors that Apple has praised for its rapid technological advancement. It is indeed an emerging player that we should not ignore. » As a reminder, in mid June, DigiTimes already claimed that Wingtech was approached for the production of MacBook Air M2.

There are good reasons for Wingtech’s rapid progress in the MacBook supply chain: indeed, the Chinese firm already manufactures computers for major tech companies, such as Samsung, Lenovo and Asustek Computer. However, experience in the laptop sector is not a prerequisite that ensures a place of choice: for decades, Compal Computer and Wistron have as principal HP, Dell or Lenovo for example, and yet the latter have not succeeded in joining the supply chain Mac, known to be one of the most demanding in the industry.
