Winbond announces plan to invest NT$335 billion in 12-inch wafer plant in Kaohsiung Science Park (2017/09/26)

Though it’s still waiting to conclude a blockbuster deal with TSMC, Kaohsiung looks set to welcome DRAM chip-maker Winbond Electronics, which has announced plans to invest NT$335 billion toward a new plant in the southern city. Construction of the plant is estimated to begin in July of next year, with volume production expected in 2020.

Dynamic random access memory chip manufacturer Winbond Electronics has announced plans to build a 12-inch wafer manufacturing plant in the Kaohsiung section of the Southern Taiwan Science Park.

Arthur Chao
Winbond Electronics Chairman
We’ll start by making DRAM wafers first. After working for many years, we’ve developed our own technology for manufacturing DRAM. I estimate by 2020, when the facility is expected to go into operation, we will be using a 25 to 20-nanometer process for mass production.

Chen Liang-gee
Science and Technology Minister
This may be only on the technological front, but the project will have a broader effect, creating a number of related jobs in technical support about four to five times (that at the factory alone).

Winbond expects to invest NT$335 billion in the project, and plans to begin commercial production there by 2020, which will require 2,500 or so high-skilled workers.

Chen Chu
Kaohsiung Mayor
For us, this project is a dream come true. We’re currently in the midst of preparatory work, and will break ground in July of next year.

If all goes well, Winbond’s wafer plant will go down in the record books as the biggest investment project in the history of Kaohsiung’s electronics industry.

Winbond to Establish Factory in Kaohsiung to Manufacture Niche Type DRAM and Flash Memory



By Korbin Lan
Published: Sep 07,2017

Taiwan's Ministry of Science and Technology (MOST) announced yesterday that semiconductor manufacturer Windbond's application to establish a factory to manufacture Niche Type Dynamic Random Access Memory (DRAM) and Flash Memory products has been approved.

Winbond is currently one of the few companies in the market with the capacity to develop both DRAM and Flash Memory. Nevertheless, the global market demand for memory is currently surging with their 12-inch factory in Taichung is nearly at full capacity. As a result, Winbond applied to establish a new factory this year.

MOST pointed out that Winbond's new factory in southern Taiwan has the potential to create nearly one thousand new employment opportunities and will make the southern semiconductor manufacturing base more complete.

MOST also emphasized that the government is doing everything in their power to assist manufacturers in matters related to land, water, and electricity. MOST will also provide support in the training of workers and technological development.
