Newegg to seek out small Taiwanese companies
DigiTimes reports that Newegg is looking to recruit second-tier Taiwanese companies
at the Computex trade show
in Taipei next week. Newegg will be targeting smaller
manufacturers of LCD TVs and consumer electronics in particular, a move
Newegg Product Management Director Luke Lu says will allow the companies
to increase their market presence.
In the global IT industry, Taiwan has a definite edge in having a
complete supply chain, Lu stated. Nonetheless, Taiwan manufacturers, who
are considering to enter the own-brand market, find themselves less
competitive due to inadequate sales and distribution resources, Lu
indicated. Newegg.com can assist these companies by providing a sales
channel platform and logistical management support through its more than
10 regional warehouses worldwide, Lu noted.
Deals with a greater number of Taiwanese manufacturers may contribute to
Newegg's growth in China, as well. DigiTimes says Newegg expects sales
from its new Shanghai-based Chinese branch
to double this year.
