ASE ordered to close K7 manufacturing facility

Advanced Semiconductor Engineering Inc. (ASE) was ordered by Taiwan regulators to shut down a factory after a pollution incident.

The factory will by closed down until "the company provides satisfactory remedies", Bloomberg writes in an article.

ASE - which recently signed a joint development and production agreement for assembly services of automotive products with Infineon Technologies AG - stated that the waste water systems at K7 were compliant with government standards and were operating normally. However, a new water recycling facility is scheduled to be operational in the second quarter of 2014.
