ASE Expands IC Assembly and Test Manufacturing Facilities in Taiwan

Kaohsiung, Taiwan, October 23rd, 2011 – Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Incorporated (ASE, TAIEX: 2311, NYSE: ASX), the world’s largest semiconductor packaging and test company, today celebrated the expansion of several manufacturing facilities in the cities of Kaohsiung and Chung Li, Taiwan with an official ceremony graced by President Ma Ying Jeou. The event was held in Kaohsiung to mark the milestones on the completion of ASE’s K12 building, the groundbreaking of Nantze Export Zone Park II as well as the groundbreaking of ASE Chung Li’s new building construction.  The expansion of these facilities will further provide 19,000 job opportunities. It is estimated that by 2014, the total number of ASE employees hired in Taiwan would have reached 42,000.

ASE K12 Building, Kaohsiung

K12 is slated to be the first assembly and test building to receive the EEWH (Ecology, Energy saving, Waste reduction and Health) diamond certificate and the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certificate.  The EEWH is Taiwan’s green standard, and recognized by the internationally acclaimed LEED-NC while the LEED Gold certification is accredited by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC).  K12 will focus on the production of ASE’s advanced packaging technologies and copper wire IC packages.

Nantze Export Zone Park II

There are 3 buildings planned for construction at the new park with two scheduled for completion in 2013 and one in 2014 respectively.  When completed, these 3 buildings will have a total area of 122,644 square meters and will be used to house production facilities as well as a core research and development center to advance ASE’s capabilities in IC manufacturing services.  In line with new building trends, the design and construction will also embrace green building standards for energy saving, reduction of CO2 emissions and a healthier working environment.

ASE Chung Li

Located near Taiwan’s international Taoyuan airport, the Chung Li campus will develop 3 new buildings to expand production areas, as well as a recreational center for employee welfare and a research center.  When completed in 2014, these facilities will also attain green building certification.

By expanding the Taiwan campuses, ASE continues its quest to become a world class leader in assembly and test manufacturing services.   Increasing production floor space and embarking on increased research focus, assure our customers of ASE’s long term plan to support growth and development of new technologies to produce faster, more cost effective and higher quality IC chips.
