Apple's sapphire maker grows the world's biggest sapphire crystal
Apple's sapphire maker grows the world's biggest sapphire crystal: "In its place, the Russian company Monocrystal was given the contract for building sapphire glass for the Apple Watch, which has helped drive the company’s revenue to $87 million annually. True, that’s a drop in the ocean compared to giants like Foxconn, but it’s still enough to firmly put it out in the lead when it comes to operating profit for sapphire makers."
Never underestimate the value of being best at a manufacturing process in its infancy. Go Russia! If you know the whole story of GT, I think it begs the question: which is the corrupt country?
