Wingtech tech could replace Taiwanese manufacturers in exclusive assembly order for Apple’s new MacBook



On October 26, Taiwanese media DIGTIMES reported that Wingtech Technology, the leading designer and original manufacturer (ODM) in mainland China, successfully replaced Quanta, Hon Hai and other Taiwan factories as the exclusive assembly plant for Apple’s new MacBook in 2022.

Taiwan’s Apple supply chain operators revealed that Wingtech Technology has already set up a production line and is currently in the initial phase of trial production. Wingtech Technology declined to comment on the rumor.

Founded in 2006, Wingtech Technology initially positioned itself as an independent design for the production of mobile phone motherboards (HDI). In 2008, it gradually transformed from HDI to MDG. Later in 2015, it was listed under the backdoor of Join In Holding Co., Ltd., becoming the first A-share listed company in the ODM industry.

As early as 2018, Wingtech Technology entered into an agreement with Qualcomm to develop laptops based on its Arm architecture. Over the past two years, the company has expanded its smart manufacturing industrial parks to many locations with the goal of continuing to expand its manufacturing capacity.

Nexperia, a subsidiary of Wingtech Technology, is a supplier of power supplies for the Apple iPhone. In the first half of this year, Wingtech Technology acquired the camera module factory owned by Ofilm, a former camera module supplier to Apple, which was seen as a preparation to enter the supply chain of the iPhone, but this time it was reported that it would enter the Mac Supply Chain.

According to Counterpoint, in the third quarter of 2021, global PC shipments increased for six consecutive quarters, reaching 84.2 million units, of which Apple Mac sales were up 11% year-over-year. As MacBook shipments continue to rise, Apple may speed up the launch of orders to Chinese manufacturers for the Mac series assembly.
