Ltd, announced that the company's capital expenditure for this year is NT$300 million ($8.96 million at NT$33.50: $1), up by 50 percent from the previous year. He noted, "The money will be used to build our second offshore factory in mainland China, and to purchase production equipment for plant in Taiwan."

According to Chang, construction of the new and second offshore factory in mainland China is scheduled to be completed during the third quarter of 2004. He added, "This factory will make receiver modules, photo links, and LED lamps and displays."

In Taiwan, the company will boost monthly capacities for CMOS images sensors used in optical mice and surface-mount LEDs to four million units each.

We have received qualifications from international known automobile makers including Ford, General Motor, Chrysler, and Toyota."
