Aaron Lee, Taipei; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 6 March 2015]

Chassis maker Catcher Technology has announced revenues of NT$4.51 billion (US$143.67 million) for February, up 63.1% on year, but down 24.5% sequentially. Catcher has seen strong demand for its products in the first quarter and its shipments remain stable after the Lunar New Year holidays, which should help boost its revenues in the quarter.

Some market watchers noted that Catcher is currently the main chassis supplier of Apple’s iPhone, iPad and MacBook, but chassis of Apple’s upcoming 12-inch MacBook Air is supplied by Pegatron Technology’s subsidiary Casetek Holding.

Catcher declined to comment on matters concerning clients, but noted that demand for metal chassis is still strong, especially the unibody layout made by CNC machines. Catcher is expected to continue expanding its capacity by buying more CNC machines in 2015

Catcher’s combined revenues for the first two months of 2015 were NT$10.47 billion, up 65.1% on year and already surpassed the NT$10.42 billion recorded in first-quarter 2014.
