Arima Optoelectronics to set up new LED epitaxy subsidiary in China

Taiwan-based LED epiwafer and chip maker Arima Optoelectronics Corp (AOC) is to invest up to US$30m to set up an LED epitaxy manufacturing subsidiary in Wujiang, Jiangsu Province, China, with equipment installation scheduled for the fourth-quarter 2010 and production at the year’s end, according to a report in Digitimes.

The new subsidiary will use an existing Arima Group plant as its production facility, so it only needs to install cleanrooms and equipment such as MOCVD reactors, the firm says.

Arima Optoelectronics aims to install 10 MOCVD systems by the end of 2010, 10 more by mid-2011, and up to 150 over the next five years, the firm indicates.
