Epistar Corp. will invest over $212 million in its expansion move in central Taiwan. The investment is expected to boost its monthly output of four-element LEDs and nitride-based LEDs to 600 million units and 200 million units, respectively. At present, the company churns out over 120 million nitride-based LEDs every month.

It has already acquired a building from Chipbond Technology Corp. for $3 million and will build a facility on a one-hectare site beside it.

In addition, Epistar purchased MOCVD machines last year and had planned to buy at least one machine each month for the first six months this year. Each of the machines will be able to produce 10 million indium tin oxide-based LEDs.
