ChinaFile’s David M. Barreda compiled an interactive map from the Apple, Inc. updated “Suppliers List 2013,” released last month. The list reports the major manufacturing locations of suppliers who provide raw materials and components or perform final assembly for the company.
The recently published report is the seventh annual supplier responsibility report put together by Apple but only the second to provide detailed addresses of its suppliers globally, the majority of which are in Asia. No surprise there.
Apple lists 748 suppliers with 600 of them operating in Asia. Other suppliers include those based in Europe, the Middle East, and the United States.
