Several major high-tech firms are to launch hiring campaigns to each recruit thousands of new employees this year for an upgrade in production technology and capacity expansion.

Among the companies are Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co (TSMC, 台積電), the world’s largest contract chip maker, and flat-panel suppliers AU Optronics Corp (AUO, 友達) and Innolux Corp (群創).

TSMC said that it is looking for 3,000 to 4,000 engineers this year, as output of its advanced 10 nanometer (nm) process — which began commercial production in the fourth quarter of last year — is expected to pick up significantly this year.
