Panasonic Starts Production At Its New PDP Plant In Japan
Panasonic today announced that the company started production on September 16 at the Third Plant of Matsushita Plasma Display Panel Company Ltd. (MPDP). The new PDP plant in Amagasaki City, Hyogo Prefecture, western Japan, began operation two months earlier than planned to fulfill the accelerating world demand for large-screen flat-panel TVs as well as to gear up for the year-end shopping season.
The new plant has an initial monthly output of 125,000 units and will boost Panasonic's total PDP production capacity to 295,000 units per month or 3.54 million units per annum. Panasonic has two other plants in Osaka, Japan, and one in Shanghai, China. When the Third Plant begins operating at its full capacity of 250,000 units per month by March 2007, Panasonic's total production capacity will exceed 5 million units per annum. Panasonic expects that the global PDP demand will reach 12 million by March 2008 and over 15 million by March 2009.
The plant employs the latest technology and can process large substrates to optimize the yield of display panels, assuring speedy and flexible supply. Capitalizing on its production capability, the company will meet demands in the market where 42 inches are most popular.
