Apple warns HDD suppliers to stick to agreement

Posted on Friday, November 04 2011 @ 21:32:52 CET by

KitGuru heard Apple has warned its hard drive suppliers that it will not tolerate any restriction in HDD shipments:
Right now, the world is crying out for hard drives in the wake of the much publicized Thai floods. Drives look set to quadruple in price, even though they don’t really cost more to make. Normally, manufacturers would be rubbing their hands together and looking forward to announcing a record quarter.

Not the case if you are supplying Apple. Their drive buy prices have been fixed. Totally.

Apple’s purchasing teams have made it crystal clear [Torquemada style? - Ed] to hard drive suppliers across Europe that the consignment stocks they are holding (and which have been promised to Mr Job’s company) had better remain untouched by greedy hands, or the consequences will be ‘severe and long lasting’.
