TSMC To Build New 12-inch Wafer Plants

TAIPEI — Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Co. plans to construct four more 12-inch wafer plants over the next few years in order to meet a projected demand.

TSMC Chairman Morris Chang this week said that the company plans to “take aggressive actions in building new wafer plants.” The new facilities will be built in the Tainan Science-based Industrial Park.

“If we stop expanding then it will be too late when demand is up. We will continue our capacity expansion,” Chang said.

TSMC has seven operational wafer plants in norther Hsinchi, one in Tainan, and several others elsewhere.
