Corning’s footprint in Taiwan began in 1971. As the LCD industry grew, Corning developed a strategy of moving its production of LCD glass close to its customers – the panel makers – and founded Corning Display Technologies Taiwan (CDTT). The organization’s registration and initial construction occurred in 2000. Through manufacturing facilities in the Science Parks in Taichung and Tainan, Corning is able to provide a reliable source of high-quality LCD substrates, local supply infrastructure and market-leading technology that meets or even exceeds the demanding requirements of Taiwan’s display makers.
Beyond CDTT, Corning has other business entities in Taiwan, including Corning International Taiwan, Corning Research Center, Taiwan (CRCT) and Corning Advanced Technology Center (CATC). Corning International in Taiwan manages the Corning businesses, including Display Technologies, Specialty Materials, Telecommunications, and Life Sciences. CRCT was established in March 2006 and is located on the campus of the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) in Hsinchu. Its mission is to engage customers and institutions in Taiwan, developing collaborations on innovative solutions to market needs. In 2011, Corning established CATC in Taipei to provide product design and development support for the fast-paced consumer electronics industry. Technical experts are also focused on development of emerging applications where Corning glass technologies can play a critical role.
