With the PC industry struggling, the challenge facing most Taiwanese computer makers is diversification. Mitac International is one company that has managed that better than most. It has expanded its server business, winning Dell and IBM as new customers to add to its existing base of Sun Microsystems and Hewlett-Packard. Mitac also is a leading seller of PDAs and handsets equipped with GPS technology, selling under its own Mio brand name and also as a contract manufacturer for Medion. GPS-related sales soared to 28.5% of 2005 sales, compared to just 15% in 2004. Profit in 2005 increased 130%, to $154 million, on a 41% increase in revenue, to $2.6 billion.
