TSMC recognizes outstanding suppliers at Supply Chain Management Forum

TSMC held its 14th annual Supply Chain Management forum on December 4, 2014 to show appreciation for the support and contributions of its suppliers in 2014, and to recognize nine outstanding equipment and materials suppliers. The theme of this year’s forum was “Collaborate and Win Together,” and over 600 suppliers around the world in the fields of equipment, materials, packaging, testing, facilities, IT systems and services, and environmental and waste management services participated in the forum.

“TSMC’s success comes from collaborating with our customers and suppliers through our Grand Alliance so that we magnify each others’ innovations and stand together as a most powerful competitive force in the semiconductor industry,” said TSMC Co-Chief Executive Officer Dr. Mark Liu. “Our supplier partners are a critical part of this alliance, and we look forward to reaping the rewards of many years of strong growth together.”

“We are very grateful for our supplier partners’ full support as we ramp our 20nm capacity at a record-breaking rate. This year’s award winners have provided exemplary service to TSMC,” said TSMC Senior Vice President and Chief Information Officer Dr. Steve Tso. “Our hard work together over the past year has laid strong foundation for the upcoming ramp in 16nm, which will generate even more opportunities for us all.”
