WD Media to Stop Selling Platters to Hitachi, Seagate
Western Digital, a leading maker of hard disk drives and the owner of Komag company that specializes on manufacturing on platters for hard disk drives, announced that starting from May, 2008, it would cease to supply its rivals with platters and will also restructurize WD Media company (the new name of Komag).
"This action sizes our media and substrate operation to the current demands of a single customer-WD's hard drive business. It efficiently streamlines our media and substrate operations while enhancing focus on the development of future manufacturing technologies to support media and substrate requirements resulting from continued success in our hard drive business," said Don Blake, vice president and general manager of WD Media.
