Not sure yet just gathering info. Looks positive although.
Barney Visser Net Worth
Date of Birth 1949
Barney Visser is the co-owner of Furniture Row; he has a net worth of $200 million. Barney Visser has earned his net worth from company Furniture Row, and as owner of Furniture Row Racing in the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series. He started his furniture career by manufacturing big poof pillows, and had 8 stores. Visser is from Denver, Colorado, and spent 21 months volunteering in the Vietnam War.
3) Visser.........Even though Barney Visser has a net worth of over 200 million, he certainly could not afford to risk all of his pot on buying 100 plus machines to do the job of an Apple execution of a product containing a significant (not a paperclip) component of liquidmetal alloy. On the premise that Visser might become a sub-contract mold designer and parts maker for Apple, we have to consider, again, that Apple would have to be involved in the financing of these machine acquisitions.
So there it is. Apple is willing to help contract manufacturers and suppliers. It is not a reach then that all three partners will be utilized by Apple.
Finally, a Visser footnote. Have you noticed they have not built their website yet? I believe that it is much better to say you have 50 or so IM machines on the floor than one beta.
when that web site goes active, for sure, we will be able to glean just how many machines Visser bought. If it is in the range of 25 to 50, then I can almost guarantee that Apple is a customer. this because Apple is high volume.
The parts that will be made for LQMT's aerospace and medical customers at a #100 per pop are not going to require anything close to the number of machines Apple's subcontractors are going to require
