Degussa/Forhouse: New Plant in Operation
Degussa GmbH, Düsseldorf has cooperated with its Taiwanese joint venture partner Forhouse Corporation, Taichung, to bring on stream a new plant for the production of PMMA molding compounds. The plant produces PMMA for optical applications. With a start-up capacity of 40,000 t/a in the first phase, it is planned as an “over-the-fence” production. Besides PMMA production, processing into lighting modules for flat-panel displays will also take place at the Taiwan site in future.
The joint-venture partner Forhouse is among the market leaders in lighting modules for flat-panel displays and operates several production lines in Taiwan and China. In 2006, Forhouse obtained sales of around EUR 492 million with around 6,000 employees.
