Hon Hai’s investment in Sharp could rattle the LCD supply chain. Advantage Apple at the potential expense of Samsung.

Hon Hai’s move to invest $800 million for a 10 percent stake of Sharp sets up an interesting supply chain battle that will benefit Apple and potentially threaten Samsung.

Behind the popularity of Apple’s iPad is a supply chain war for components. Apple’s supply chain is second to none and the company uses its cash hoard to procure parts. That Retina Display in the iPad was a major coup. In addition, Apple will gobble up more screens should it launch an iTV.

Foxconn Scandal Offers Supply Chain Lessons

Foxconn

What do Apple, HP and Dell have in common – apart from making computers? They all source electronics from Foxconn,  the beleaguered Chinese company under fire for working conditions at its factories. There is a clear lesson to be drawn from the ongoing Foxconn furor. Fortune 500 companies’ supply chains are increasingly under the microscope— by consumers, investors, and the media.

Apple Foxconn

This report is the result of a Fair Labor Association (FLA) independent investigation into Apple’s supplier Foxconn, China’s largest private employer. FLA is a unique collaboration among companies, universities, and labor and human rights civil society organizations that goes beyond identifying labor problems by uncovering the sources of these problems, and how best to resolve them. Working directly with corporations allows for more success in developing meaningful solutions that remain after public scrutiny and media attention have faded. After growing criticism during 2011 about the working conditions at Foxconn, including those conditions that led to deadly accidents, Apple agreed to allow FLA to conduct a thorough investigation of those suppliers, beginning with three factories at Guanlan, Longhua, and Chengdu in China. Much more than an audit for compliance, this investigation is best described as an in-depth, top-down and bottom-up examination of the entire operation.
