Applied Materials Expands Manufacturing Capacity In Taiwan


Applied Materials Inc. has opened a newly expanded Tainan Manufacturing Center in Tainan, Taiwan. The nearly 15,000 square-meter facility will enhance Applied's capability to serve its flat-panel display and thin-film solar PV customers in Asia while capitalizing on Taiwan's location, talent pool and supply-chain efficiencies, the company states.

The Tainan Manufacturing Center employs approximately 150 people and is expected to build and ship about 100 new plasma-enhanced chemical vapor deposition and physical vapor deposition systems this year – a 400% increase in shipments from last year's numbers.
