Our friends at Fudzilla had a little news bit a few days ago, about the lay-off of 450 employees at Leadtek. The company has now reacted and I had the following statement with the title Statement to the Untrue Internet Rumor "Leadtek Fires 450 in Taiwan" in my mailbox this morning:
View at TechPowerUp Main SiteWith its strong and healthy operation, Leadtek Research Inc. does not fire 450 employees as rumor said. The partnership of Leadtek and NVIDIA remains solid, as Leadtek is still the exclusive partner of NVIDIA Quadro series in APAC, except in Japan.
To clarify the false internet rumor, "…Leadtek, recently fired 450 people from its operation…Leadtek was not in NVIDIA's top six list and this might be the partial reason….", Leadtek states the facts here :
1. With 378 employees at the moment, Leadtek is in a good and strong condition, no future down-sizing plan ongoing.
2. Leadtek NVIDIA Quadro series is leading in Asia-Pacific, and NVIDIA has stated that Leadtek is still its direct account and the exclusive distributor of NVIDIA Quadro series in APAC region (except in Japan).
The rumor of firing 450 people and the loosing partnership with NVIDIA is apparently false and exaggerating.
