The dominant provider of the thin-film disks that go inside disk drives, Komag has made the most of the booming demand for data storage capacity. Sales ballooned 59% in 2005, to $754 million. Since Komag revamped operations to slash costs, the stock has risen from $2.50 in mid-2002 to $42. Now the company is focused on aluminum-based media that can store far more gigabytes than existing glass-based disks.
