LCD equipment vendors embarking on business diversification
Feb 26, 2007
As the LCD market has continued to be stagnant, Koran LCD equipment manufacturers are heating up to diversify their business sectors.
Jusung Engineering Co. Ltd. has recently eliminated production and sales of semiconductor and LCD manufacturing equipment, and sales of semiconductor and LCD equipment components from its business objectives, and instead, it has added sales of flat panel display (FPD) manufacturing equipment and related parts, and production and sales of solar battery manufacturing equipment.
Next Instrument has decided to expand the LCD business unit, while foraying into the new semiconductor equipment segment. New business sectors will include semiconductor equipment such as furnace, chemical vapor deposition (CVD), and wafer inspector.
