Should return Air, Pro shipments to normal

A major Apple supplier, Catcher Technology, has confirmed it will fully reopen a closed Chinese plant next week, according to Reuters. The facility has been in limbo since mid-October, when it was forced to temporarily shut down because of complaints of strange odors received by local government. Catcher has previously said it would resume operations by November, and spend about $2-3 million to reduce pollution.

While the plant was initially described as primarily making MacBook Air casings, more recent accounts say it makes 60 percent of all MacBook unibody shells, including ones for the MacBook Pro. It has also done some production of iMac casings. Because of the shutdown, Catcher has said overall October shipments will be lower by 20 percent.
