Taiwan-based AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) has opened a manufacturing facility in Xiamen, its second production base in China for small-, medium- and large-sized LCD modules.

With a building area of 250,000m?, AUO's Xiamen manufacturing facility, located at Xiamen Torch Hi-tech Industrial Development Zone, began volume production in April 2007. It is estimated that by the end of 2007 production capacity may reach 500,000 units per month for large-sized LCD modules and 5,000,000 units per month for small-and -medium sized LCD modules.

Since entering the China market in 2002, AUO has steadily increased its business and services in line with the company's overall global growth strategy. The new Xiamen manufacturing facility is a vital part of AUO's global manufacturing operation system, enabling AUO to respond more rapidly and provide undiluted focus on the needs of its customers.

"As China continues to shape the global economic landscape, our mainland China customers must have access to real-time and immediate support in order to be competitive and continue to grow their businesses," said K.Y. Lee, chairman of AUO. "We recognized China's potential many years ago and have steadily increased our investment in the market over the past six years. The establishment of our Xiamen manufacturing facility strengthens our commitment to the dynamic China marketplace and complements our current global manufacturing and logistical operations."

With the joining of AUO Xiamen in LCD-module manufacturing, production capacity will increase by 50 percent for both China's monthly TV module capacity and small-and-medium sized LCD module capacity. AUO currently employs a total of approximately 3,500 employees in Xiamen.
