Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd and Sony Corp. have signed a contract to establish an additional 8th generation amorphous TFT-LCD manufacturing line at their joint venture S-LCD Corp.

Established in April 2004, S-LCD started its 7th generation line operation in April 2005 and its first 8th generation line operation in August 2007 to manufacture and supply TFT-LCD panels to Samsung and Sony. To meet the increase of the world demand for LCD TVs, Samsung and Sony agreed to expand the capacity of the 8th generation line. Total investment for the 8-2 line will be approximately $1.9 billion and will be invested by S-LCD.

The 8-2 line will be built in the Tangjeong Complex and production is targeted to start in Q2 09. The production capacity of the new line is expected to be initially 60,000 sheets per month (substrate glass input basis). The size of substrate glass from this line will be 2,200mm x 2,500mm.
