Taiwan-based LCD backlight company Radiant Opto Co. Ltd has received an approval from the Investment Commission of the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) to invest $25 million for the construction of an offshore factory in Wujiang, mainland China.

The offshore plant will be constructed in a 100,000-square-meter land beginning next month. Mass production is scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of this year. P. C. Chen, VP, said, "we need to speed up construction because the shipment of our production equipment is due in three months and we only have more than a month to install them."

The company is scheduled to establish another Taiwan plant in August 2002 with a monthly capacity of 650,000 units of large-size LCD backlights and 350,000 units of small- and medium-size LCD backlights. The combined monthly capacity will be 1.30 million units.
