Matsushita Electric Industrial Co., Ltd. and diversified chemical group Toray Industries, Inc., plan to build a new plasma display panel (PDP) manufacturing facility in Japan. It will be the fifth PDP plant of their joint venture, Matsushita PDP Company Ltd. (MPDP), enabling Panasonic to further step up its PDP production capacity, said to make it by far the largest PDP manufacturer in the world.

To leverage concentration of manufacturing facilities to its advantage, MPDP plans to build the new plant in Amagasaki, Japan near the existing fourth plant. The construction is scheduled to start in November 2007 and the first phase of the production in May 2009.

With an investment of approximately 280 billion yen (approx. U.S. $2.3 billion), the fifth plant will have a monthly production capacity of 1 million units (calculated based on 42-inch panels)--the largest production capacity of PDP in the world. The investment efficiency of the new plant will be five times or greater than that of MPDP's first PDP plant.

By introducing the latest facilities as well as MPDP's leading-edge processing technologies and production systems, the new plant will realize as many as ten 42-inch panels, or eight 50-inch panels, from a single sheet of glass, the world's largest number of panels per sheet in PDP production.
