Formosa Epitaxy plans new LED plant

MOCVD epitaxy developer and LED chip maker Formosa Epitaxy has received approval from the administration of the Southern Taiwan Science Park (STSP) to establish a new plant, as a wholly owned subsidiary, for the development of MOCVD and LED chips as well as the production and sales of GaN LEDs, reports Digitimes.

Formosa Epitaxy will invest NT$535m (US$16.3m), says its chairman Chien Fen-ren. The company says that the plant is needed to meet demand for its customers based in southern Taiwan.

However, Formosa Epitaxy has not yet finalized the schedule for the construction and capacity.
