Toshiba, currently ranked seventh in the LCD market, will take a 20 percent stake in the new Poland operation, and hopes to triple its European LCD TV sales to 3 million units annually, starting by the spring of 2009. Panels from LG. Philips would be supplied to a Toshiba assembly plant in Wroclaw, Poland, which is scheduled to begin operations next August.
