A steady supply of iPods is necessary to keep the USA happy. Did you know that a critical part of their supply chain is right here in Laguna?
I read this article, Tuning out supply chain risk, a few weeks ago. I remembered it now that Reming/Durian is coming. iPod hard drives are by a company in Laguna Technopark – he did not mention who, but I’m guessing and googling it’s Fujitsu?
The author did a business continuity plan before Milenyo hit, and found that iPod production is very dependent on the Laguna Technopark. Another hard drive maker, and a spindle manufacturer, are at the same location. If Reming destroys these, generally unhappiness in the USA?
If only the complete iPod was made here, then we could either have big discounts, or “overrun” products like garments.
