Winbond to build R&D center close to ChuPei station

The board of directors of Winbond Electronics Corp. recently approved the plan to spend about $21.6 million to get a commercial land close to the High-Speed Rail ChuPei Station. The company further plans to spend another $21.6 million to build its own R&D building on that piece of property.

Winbond said that the consideration of this project is that in the future the traffic hour from Taipei to Hsinchu or from Taichung to Hsinchu will only take half hour by Taiwan High-Speed Rail, and even one way from South of Taiwan to Hsinchu merely takes about one hour. Employees will therefore be able to enjoy the convenience of life cycle in Taipei and the wide, natural life style in mid or south of Taiwan. The company believes that the one day life cycle that will be changed by High-Speed Rail will improve Taiwan's quality of living standard dramatically.

The R&D building that can contain about 1000 employees will be located only 5 minutes walking distance to the High-Speed Rail Station. In the future, Winbond employees could ride the High-Speed Rail to work.

The company anticipates that people in the industry will pay more attention on R&D and the effect of gathering around HsinChu once the new building opens. More high tech talents will be attracted to live in the HsinChu Science Park neighborhood and will help the blooming and development of HsinChu suburbs, Winbond.
