Taipei, Feb. 14 (CNA) A liquid-crystal display (LCD) plant in Guangzhou, in which Hon Hai Precision Industry Co. Chairman Terry Gou (郭台銘) has invested, is slated to start mass production in October, according to the company.
An advanced 8K mask aligner, a device used to manufacture integrated circuits, was installed at the facility on Thursday as scheduled.
Equipment testing at the plant will be conducted in June, with annual output expected to be worth about 92 billion Chinese yuan (US$13.6 billion) a year.
Gou said he expects mass production at the plant to help foster creative industries and connect key production bases in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay area, which he likened to Route 101 in Silicon Valley in the United States. [FULL STORY]
