Quanta Says Taiwan Staff Down as Client Orders Fall


TAIPEI (Reuters) - Quanta Computer Inc, the world's largest PC contract maker, said on Wednesday that employees at its Taiwan production line number less than 2,000, down from about 3,000 in the first half, following a decline in client orders.

Quanta spokesman Elton Yang said the about 1,000 employees who had left were all contractors and the company would keep staff levels at the Taiwan production line at a minimum as order visibility remained unclear.

Tang did not say what the minimum level was, and declined to say which client the affected production line served.

Taiwan media on Wednesday reported that the reason for the move was a drop in orders from BlackBerry maker Research In Motion Ltd for its struggling PlayBook tablet device.
