STMicroelectronics has marked its 25th anniversary in the region by inaugurating its new Taiwan office on an area of almost 4,000 square metres at the Neihu Science Park in Taipei. This also underlines its continuing commitment to the market that plays a strategic role in the global ICT industry.

"Starting its operations in Asia Pacific more than 40 years ago, ST recognised early on the vast potential and growing significance of the region, and has become a major player in the world's fastest growing semiconductor market," said Francois Guibert, ST's corporate VP and president of Greater China and South Asia region "The new office underlines the importance of Taiwan as a key driver of ST's ongoing expansion in this part of the world, which already accounts for 40 per cent of our global sales revenues and hosts the backbone of the company's manufacturing and design operations."

Taiwan is home to top-tier global ODMs, as well as some of the largest EMS companies and it is also the world's second largest producer of IT products. With its comprehensive semiconductor industry supply chain, from IC design and manufacturing to packaging and testing, accounting for almost 70 per cent of the world's contract IC chip output and a quarter of the global IC design market, Taiwan is setting the pace for the whole Greater China Region and the world. Clearly, ST's aggressive growth in partnership with Taiwan's local ODM and EMS players is a vital part of our future strategy.

"In the first twenty five years, ST's Taiwan staff has grown tenfold, building a strong integrated presence which includes an R&D lab that encompasses product test and design-in technical competence and failure analysis, sales and marketing, and customer support," said Giuseppe Izzo, general manager of ST's Taiwan Operation. "The decision to relocate and expand the ST Taiwan office will further enhance close partnerships with local electronics powerhouses, promote value chain development and cultivate talent for the Taiwan semiconductor industry."

Set up on an area of almost 4,000 square meters, the new Taiwan office at the Neihu Science Park accommodates a modern R&D laboratory and office space for further growth, enabling faster and better access to important customers in the area.
