Philips breaks ground on LED manufacturing facility in China
Philips held the groundbreaking ceremony yesterday morning for its LED Professional Lighting Solutions manufacturing facility in Chengdu High-tech Industrial Development Zone, China.
The ground breaking is part of a bilateral cooperation between Philips and Chengdu and signals a new phase since the two sides signed the LED strategic cooperation agreement last December. It is expected that the site will start production in 2013. First established in 1988, the Chengdu Hi-Tech Zone ranks 4th among China's 88 state-level hi-tech zones and is strongly supported by national provincial and municipal authorities. With a planned area of 130 sq km, CDHT is divided into the south and the west park.
