Toshiba Announces the Opening of New Thai-Based Semiconductor Facility

Toshiba have today announced that their Thai-based Group company, Toshiba Semiconductor Thailand (TST), has completed its relocation to a new semiconductor manufacturing facility.

Situated 140km north-east of Bangkok, this state of the art facility has already started mass production, marking the company's recovery from the devastating 2011 flooding.

Construction of the plant began in July 2012 and limited production started in April of this year, the facility is now operating at its current target capacity and is 1.4 times the size of the flood damaged plant.

TST carries out back-end processes, the assembly and packaging of small signal devices and photocouplers, both product areas where strong demand growth is expected. Small signal devices control current and voltage in digital consumer products and are essential components in products such as smart phones and tablets. Photocouplers are widely used in industrial products, including inverters.
