LG.Philips LCD Co. Ltd has announced that its new "P5" facility, a fifth-generation (5G) TFT-LCD fabrication plant, has commenced volume production, following the successful ramping at its "P4".

Located in Gumi, South Korea, the new P5 facility will produce TFT-LCDs for 17-inch and larger desktop monitors and larger LCD TV receivers such as the 26-inch wide model. Currently in the first phase of ramp-up (up to 30K sheet per month), P5 is expected to reach full production capacity in 2H of 2003, achieving a total of 60K sheets per month by year end-enabling LG.

"Based on our successful early ramp and high production rates of P4, we were able to even more quickly set up and start production for P5, in record time," commented KS Park, LG.Philips LCD's EVP of manufacturing. "This factory will also broaden our product line, enabling us to be the world's No.1 supplier of monitor modules."
