Shuttle to poach from ECS

Taiwanese PC maker Shuttle has been rumored on Monday morning to be looking at recruiting a team of 40 employees from notebook maker ECS. Industry contacts for DigiTimes claimed that the small form factor desktop and nettop specialist not only plans to add staff but also plans on raising funds by issuing 150,000 new shares meant for private placement, with Inventec's chairman Kou-I Yeh named as one such potential investor.

ECS commented that it is not aware of any moves from rival companies to hire away any of its employees.

What Shuttle would produce in a notebook isn't known, as it's best known for barebones systems and produces these for AMD and Intel platforms alike. Its lineup is likely to skew towards Intel both due to performance as well as to the option of using Atom for netbooks.
