Panasonic completes new plasma panel plant in Amagasaki

Panasonic held a ceremony in Amagasaki, Hyogo Prefecture last week to mark the completion of a major new plasma display panel plant.

The new facility is capable of producing the world’s largest plasma displays at 330cm x 190cm. It is designed to shore up Panasonic’s plasma display business, which is lagging behind its liquid crystal display panel output.

The new plant began trial production in November, six months behind schedule due to low demand because of the recession. The factory will begin commercial production this month, with an initial monthly rate equivalent to 120,000 units of 42in panels.

Panasonic’s monthly production of plasma panels at its three plants in Amagasaki will expand to 1.06 million units.
