SDK establishes Taiwan LED sales subsidiary

Tokyo-based chemical manufacturer Showa Denko KK (SDK) has established a subsidiary Taiwan Showa Denko Electronics Co Ltd in Taipei, with capital of NT$10m, to strengthen sales and customer support for its LED chips.

SDK says that demand for LED lamps is growing rapidly worldwide, reflecting progress in commercializing LED-containing products. In particular, due to their international price competitiveness, Taiwanese LED lamp makers are expanding their operations. Correspondingly, demand for SDK's LED chips is growing steadily in Taiwan for incorporation into LED lamps.

SDK says that the new Taiwan subsidiary will begin operations in November.
