New Wistron plant in Czech Republic to enter commercial production in 2007
Oct 23, 2006
Taiwan-based notebook maker Wistron is building a new plant in the Czech Republic, with the new plant expected to begin volume production of LCD TVs and other large-sized or high-tariff IT products in 2007, according to company sources.
The advantage of low logistic costs and a cluster of Taiwan-invested companies, including Foxconn Electronics (the registered trade name of Hon Hai Precision Industry), Asustek Computer, Inventec and BenQ, attracted Wistron to set up its new plant in the Czech Republic, the sources stated.
The new plant is being built to replace an inefficiently-operated plant in Hungary that the company closed early this year, the sources noted.
