Japan investment project kicks off in Yunlin

A Japan-invested electrodeposited copper foil plant opened July 12 in Yunlin County, auguring well for Taiwan’s prospects in the lucrative global automobile lithium battery industry.

Situated in Yunlin Technology-based Industrial Park, the factory is operated by Furukawa Electric Copper Foil Taiwan Co. Ltd., the local subsidiary of Tokyo-headquartered Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd. The Japanese firm is a leading producer of copper foils for automobile lithium batteries, supplying 40 percent of the global market.

The NT$2.5 billion (US$84.75 million) central Taiwan facility is expected to produce 500 tons of cooper foil per month and create 70 jobs for the locals, according to the Ministry of Economic Affairs.
