Panel maker AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) has reportedly commenced construction of its new LCD facility in Xiamen, mainland China.

Following announcements late last year that the company will be setting up a new China plant worth $2.5 million, AUO's plans are apparently already underway, with the facility expected to begin production in the second half of next year. The new plant will be manufacturing small- and medium-sized displays.

Industry reports are saying that AUO has also suggested that makers of LCD backlights, including Radiant Opto-Electronics Corp. and Forhouse Corp., to setup their own manufacturing facilities in Xiamen. Radiant, for one, has reportedly confirmed that it will be establishing a new plant in the area, with construction to begin next quarter.

AUO presently has three LCD module facility sites: Taiwan's Aspire Park, Taiwan's Central Taiwan Science Park, and another major site in Suzhou, China.
