Quanta Computer Inc (廣達), the world’s largest server and notebook computer manufacturer, plans to expand its server operations in the US in the face of rising demand and US president-elect Donald Trump’s campaign vow to boost US manufacturing, a company executive said.
Quanta Cloud Technology (QCT, 雲達科技), its server subsidiary, plans to expand the production capacity of its two US plants in the next three years, Mike Yang (楊晴華), president of QCT and a senior vice president and general manager at Quanta Computer, said in a report by Nikkei Asian Review.
Yang said that QCT has the “upper hand” should Trump’s campaign promise become policy, as the company already has server assembly facilities in Fremont, California, and Nashville, Tennessee. [FULL STORY]
