Pegatron Beefs Up Operation in Taiwan

Reading time ( words)

Pegatron has been shifting its production back to Taiwan from China to minimize the impact of the US hiking tariffs on Chinese imports, according to Digitimes. The company has accelerated the establishment of its R&D center in Taiwan to strengthen its development capability, and it has acquired new plants to manufacture products with high added values such as Internet of Things (IoT) sensors.

Pegatron has also upgraded its two existing plants in Taoyuan, Taiwan with additional production lines and automated equipment to raise the proportion of its manufacturing in Taiwan. Pegatron has invested around NT$14.9 billion ($469.5 million) in the new plans in Taiwan and is expected to create over 1,000 new jobs, Digitimes added.
