Syntax-Brillian Corp., a manufacturer and marketer of LCD and LCoS™ HDTVs and digital entertainment products, today celebrates the opening of a new production facility in Ontario, California that will produce the company’s full line of innovative Olevia LCD and LCoS™ TVs for distribution to retailers and markets throughout the United States and Canada.
Operating in partnership with Solar Link Technologies, a wholly owned subsidiary of Taiwan-based Pou Chen Group, the approximately 50,000 sq. ft. facility is capable of producing in excess of 200,000 LCD and LCoS™ TVs annually representing the full line of Olevia-brand TVs in screen sizes ranging from 32 to 65 inches.
Featuring a state-of-the-art, semi-automated production line and a Class 10,000 clean room for LCoS™ component assembly, the facility began initial operations with a pilot line in September and will begin volume production shortly after opening ceremonies on Oct. 24. The facility currently employs 120 workers on one shift with plans to increase production and employment to two shifts by early 2007.
Cutting-edge Olevia LCoS™ HDTVs designed by Tempe, Arizona-based Syntax-Brillian and produced at the Ontario facility will carry the “Made in USA” label. The Olevia LCD TVs will carry the “Designed and Assembled in USA” label.
Syntax-Brillian’s Ontario production facility offers key logistical advantages because of its close proximity to vendor partner warehouse locations containing materials crucial in LCD and LCoS™ TV production including thin film transistor liquid crystal display (TFT-LCD) panels, plastics, electrical engineering solutions and power supplies.
The Ontario, California LCD and LCoS™ facility is the second major production and assembly facility opened by Syntax-Brillian this month. On Oct. 16, 2006 the company announced the opening of a 30,000+ sq. ft. LCD TV production facility in Nanjing, China, with a projected output of 300,000 units annually. The Nanjing facility supports and operates under the auspices of the company’s involvement in the Nanjing Huahai Display Technology Co., Ltd. joint venture.
