Quanta Computer to Shift LCD TV Set Production to Germany

Quanta Computer, the integrator in Taiwan versus Quanta Display Inc., who will be merged into AU Optronics (AUO), will be shifting a portion of its LCD TV set production capacities from Taiwan to Germany to reduce shipping costs. China is a booming market for LCD TVs but so is Europe and for the next few years, Europe will be a much bigger market than China. Quanta is also planning to stop outsourcing TV production to Flextronics and manufacture the TVs by itself. Bad news for Flextronics. Source: DigiTimes
