GT Ask Court To Close Its Apple Plant

Posted on October 10, 2014

Re/Code delivers some new information about the GT Bankruptcy story:

Sapphire crystal maker GT Advanced Technologies, which filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection earlier this week, has asked the court’s permission to “wind down” operations at its manufacturing plant, less than a year after announcing a high-profile deal to supply the material to Apple.

I think that bury even more the possibility of seeing some GT Advanced sapphire screens on future iPhones. But we don’t know many things about this bankruptcy filling (GT seems to go to great lengths to comply to a confidentiality agreement that it made with Apple).
