Linde sees rapid growth as chosen gas supplier by three leading Gen 8.5 display manufacturers in China
Thursday, Nov 29, 2012
Capitalising on the growth of the display industry in China, the Linde Gases Division, part of The Linde Group, has become a major supplier of bulk and electronics specialty gases to China's flat panel display industry. Linde's Joint Ventures Linde LienHwa and Linde GISE have been awarded major bulk gas supply contracts by the three largest display manufacturers in China - Samsung Electronics, BOE and ChinaStar Optoelectronics Technology (CSOT) - for their Gen 8.5 facilities to increase the cost effectiveness and environmental efficiency of their display manufacturing process. The total investment in on-site gas generation plants and related equipment for the three projects is in the range of EUR 100 million.
To support innovation in the display sector, Linde also established two new high-purity nitrous oxide (N2O) gas facilities in Taiwan and Korea and newly acquired a third plant in China. The aim of this major investment is to accelerate the adoption of metal oxide transistors by display manufacturers, which will enable the cost-effective development of next-generation ultra high definition (UHD) 3D TFT-LCD and OLED displays.
This increase in new business has seen Linde become the leading gas supplier of choice to the display industry in China. The majority of this growth has been fuelled by the adoption of the leading SPECTRA-N on-site nitrogen generator series that offers up to 30 percent lower power consumption and the success of Linde’s Electronics Specialty Gases facility in Suzhou distributing a comprehensive range of over 40 specialty gases to any display fab anywhere in China.
