Innolux (3481) chairman Tuan Hsing-chien stated Monday, Innolux is aggressively promoting the “reindustrialization” of Taiwan’s panel industry. The company will relocate 25% to 30% of its mainland production lines to Taiwan and introduce automated production to reduce lead time and increase yield.

Following announcements from Hon Hai (2317), ASE (2311), and Largan (3008), Innolux is yet another domestic benchmark electronics company to indicate an expansion of layout in Taiwan. According to reports, Innolux is focused on establishing a comprehensive automated production line in Taiwan with annual investments totaling several hundred million U.S. dollars.

After attending the signing of a vocational industry academia alliance for automation between Innolux and Southern Taiwan University of Technology, National Kaohsiung First University of Science and Technology, Kun Shan University, and Far East University Monday, Tuan stated, the continuing process of major electronics manufacturers in Europe and the U.S. withdrawing manufacturing from China and relocating plants to the location of the parent company to increase yield and reduce lead time through production line automation is called “reindustrialization.” Apart from prompting a rise in employment rates in Europe and the U.S., this trend has also increased industry competitiveness.

He said, Innolux is aggressively promoting the “reindustrialization” of Taiwan’s panel industry by relocate 25% to 30% of the company’s mainland production lines to Taiwan. In addition to creating jobs, this move will strengthen production line automation to enhance manufacturing technology and cultivate the talent required for industry advancement.

Innolux currently contracts 60,000 employees in China and company production lines cannot be completely relocated to Taiwan. However, a portion can be brought back. Promoting automated green production lines will stimulate a transformation in Taiwan’s industrial structure.
