One of the enterprises Foxconn Group to build in China a factory for the production of touch screens for panels OLED
General Interface Solution (GIS), a member of the Foxconn Group, plans to invest $ 750 million in the construction of a factory for the production of touch screens. The company plans to build in the Western part of China. These investments will be allocated over five years, but the products of the factory will begin to produce earlier, since it is assumed that the availability of appropriate facilities, will allow GIS to compete for orders for screens for smartphones Apple iPhone with OLED display, which is expected in 2017.
The chances of the GIS increases the proximity to Foxconn, the main manufacturing partner of Apple.
As according to industry sources, Apple has already chosen as the first supplier of touch modules for OLED panels to the Japanese company Nissha Printing. Alternative is necessary because Apple tries to avoid dependence on a single supplier. GIS competitors in the struggle for orders, Apple, a Chinese company called O-film Tech and Taiwanese TPK Holding.
