Apple Adds $390 Million to American Facility In Finisar Deal
Apple invests $390 million in US-made iPhone lasers
15 December, 2017, 08:22
The money will be used by California-based Finisar to build a manufacturing plant in Texas, where it will produce vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers, or VCELs, in vast quantities.
Finisar has clarified that the $390M contribution from Apple'sAdvanced Manufacturing Fundannounced yesterday is not an investment in the company, but rather an agreed payment for anticipated future orders. Corning Inc, the maker of glass for iPhone and iPad screens, earlier received US$200 million for glass processing. Finisar is planning to open a manufacturing plant in Texas to create the VCSELs that Apple requires for its products. It will also lead to more VCSELs for Apple in the latter half of 2018, helping to protect Apple against potential shortages from its leading VCSEL supplier, Lumentum.
The iPhone X, even if you can't see it, can do nifty tricks like Animoji and Face ID all thanks to invisible lasers.
The opening of the plant in Texas comes after President Donald Trump heavily criticized Apple and other American companies for building their products overseas. In the fourth quarter of 2017, Apple will purchase 10 times more VCSEL wafers than were previously manufactured worldwide over a similar time period.
Finisar CEO Jerry S. Rawls said the company was "excited" to continue working with Apple.
The investment will also create more than 500 high-skill jobs at Sherman.
"If we can create many manufacturing jobs, those manufacturing jobs create more jobs around them because you have a service industry that builds up around them", Cook said of the fund on CNBC earlier this year. Analysts believe Apple's deal with Finisar means it will be entitled to the production capacity that results.
'Technology is only as good as the people behind it, and Finisar is a company with a long history of putting its employees first and supporting the community it's a part of. Well, look for (or don't) more of that invisible magic in the future.
