The expansion reinforces Amkor’s manufacturing capability in Taiwan – Amkor Technology announced on September 10th the opening of its new manufacturing and test plant at Longtan Science Park in Taiwan.
“Demand for Amkor’s advanced assembly and test services in Taiwan continues to increase. The opening of our fourth factory in Taiwan will allow us to keep pace with that demand,” said Steve Kelley, Amkor’s president and CEO. “Our new Longtan facility will focus on wafer probe and die processing, complementing the wafer-level and other advanced packaging capabilities of our other three factories.”
The new facility is Amkor’s first manufacturing plant in Longtan Science Park, which is well known for incubating Taiwanese high-tech businesses, including those in the semiconductor industry. The Science Park has strict environmental protection standards and only companies that are in full compliance are permitted. Amkor is also seeking ISO 15408 Common Site Criteria certification for the Longtan plant to ensure rigorous security protection during the manufacturing process.
“I am pleased to announce the opening of our new factory in Longtan, which enters its production phase this month,” said YongChul Park, Amkor’s executive vice president, Worldwide Manufacturing. “This expansion signifies Amkor’s ongoing commitment to invest globally and showcases our ability to leverage resources internationally”.
