Sharp ups TV panel production

JAPANESE electronics maker Sharp Corp said yesterday that it will raise production of panels for televisions to accommodate improving global demand.

The company said that it will boost production output by about 10 percent to 100,000 units from 90,000 units after August at one of its plants in Kameyama, Japan, which makes so-called "eighth-generation" glass panels, the Osaka-based maker of Aquos TVs said in a release.

The news comes on top of another decision announced in April to bring another liquid-crystal display plant, in nearby Sakai, into operation in October.

Sharp has been adjusting its operations to produce at its newer plants making bigger panels, while closing some of its older assembly lines that make small and medium displays.

It has also been trying to reshape its business amid the economic downturn to focus on China and other emerging markets with growth potential.
