Apple sets to build new manufacturing plant in Taiwan as it expand investments

U.S. consumer electronics giant Apple Inc., one of the largest clients for many Taiwanese tech exporters, is planning to expand its investment in Taiwan by building a new plant in the Longtan section of Hsinchu Science Park, northern Taiwan, the CNA reported on Monday (May 11).

According to the investment application data, the science park administration gave the greenlight to Apple's Taiwan branch on Feb. 18 to set up a new plant in Longtan, Taoyuan, where the U.S. firm currently has operations, according to CNA.

Apple’s Taiwan branch is dedicated to the research, design, development, production and sale of low-temperature polysilicon (LTPS) and oxide thin-film transistor (TFTs) displays, the report said.

With the acquisition of InVisage Technologies in 2017, Apple’s product portfolio in Taiwan now includes Quantum Film photosensitive components, based on the report.

 Apple has had a lab in Longtan since 2014 and with the new investment, the company aims to roll out Mini LED and Micro LED related displays.

The report added that the Longtan plant is expected to become the third overseas R&D hub for Apple after Japan and South Korea.
