The total capital investment of about ¥15 billion ($110.5 million/ €101.4 million) also includes the expansion of an existing facility.
FUJIFILM Corporation announced that it will build a new factory for semiconductor materials in Taiwan in order to further expand its electronic materials business. The company’s Taiwan-based semiconductor materials subsidiary, FUJIFILM Electronic Materials Taiwan Co., Ltd. (Head office in Hsinchu City, Taiwan; President: Alex Chang), will acquire land in Hsinchu City and build a new factory for producing CMP slurries and photolithography-related materials, due to go operational in the spring of 2026.
The existing factory, the Third Taiwan Factory, in Tainan City will also be expanded to include CMP slurry manufacturing capability in the new building under construction, which is due to commence operation in the spring of 2024. The total amount of capital investment, combining the construction of the new factory and facility reinforcement of the existing factory, comes to approximately ¥15 billion ($110.5 million/ €101.4 million).
The new factory in Hsinchu City for cutting-edge semiconductor materials will expand the product supply capacity of FUJIFILM Electronic Materials Taiwan to cater to the fast-growing semiconductor market in Taiwan.
The factory will feature the latest manufacturing facilities and quality assessment equipment so as to strengthen its production capabilities and technical support structures for CMP slurries and photolithography-related materials. A product warehouse is being established in order to establish a supply structure capable of responding to customer requests in detail.
Photovoltaic solar panels will also be installed to reduce the factory’s environmental impact.
The office function of the adjacent First and Second Taiwan Factories will be integrated into the new facility for reinforced intra-factory collaboration. For the expansion of production capabilities at the new and existing factories, the company plans to create about 50 new jobs.
