Dell to Stop Using China-Made Chips
Dell Technologies (DELL) plans to stop using China-made chips by 2024 amid concerns about relations between the US and Beijing, Nikkei Asia reported Thursday, citing unnamed people with direct knowledge of the matter.
The computer maker is targeting a meaningful reduction in its usage of chips made in China, including those made by non-Chinese manufacturers with facilities in the country, the report said.
Dell has also talked to suppliers of other components such as electronic modules and print circuit boards about preparing capacity as the company considers sourcing these parts from other countries like Vietnam, the sources reportedly said.
In a statement to the newspaper, the company said it is continuously exploring supply chain diversification across the globe, adding that China is an important market. # Dell to Stop Using China-Made Chips
