Quanta bullish about Apple Watch sales

WatchQuanta Computer is a Taiwanese original development manufacturer (ODM) and its business grew on the back of it making notebook PCs for manufacturers.

But recently it has diversified, and as well as making servers that it ships direct to selected customers, it’s also making the Apple Watch.

It’s the sole manufacturer so far, and told the Digitimes wire that it expected a large growth in shipments of the watches in the second half of this year.

It also discounted rumours that other manufacturers were being lined up to second source Apple Watch production, but that could well happen if the device becomes as popular as the company hopes.

Digitimes thinks that as many as 40 million watches could ship this year, but other sources are far less buoyant about its future.

Quanta turned in $2.49 billion in revenues during the month of May, much of that not based on notebook PCs but on its diversified ranges.
