Merck to open R&D and application lab in Taiwan

DARMSTADT, GERMANY/TAIPEI, TAIWAN: Merck’s new business R&D and application lab is set to begin operations in Taiwan. The first in Asia to employ such wide-ranging and diversified technology, the lab will provide key materials and first-rate technical services for the development of Organic Light-Emitting Diode (OLED) panels, Light-Emitting Diode (LED) lighting, 3D technology and flexible displays. The lab will help customers accelerate product development for these new technologies, shortening the time to market.

“This island is the breeding ground for technological development and this is proven by such outstanding products as high contrast and high transmission panels (PS-VA), ultra-high-definition TV (4K2K), and the huge sizes of displays. We are confident that Taiwan will have a dominant position in the display and lighting industries of the future,” said Bernd Reckmann, Member of Executive Board, Merck.

“Our development staff will provide immediate interaction with clients to understand their needs, solve their problems, and directly engage in supplying needs for materials. They will do tests in the shortest time possible, expedite communication and help reduce the time for developing new products. We will address urgent and complex issues even at midnight; Merck’s team of experts in Europe also will spare no effort to promptly solve problems our clients may face. We look forward to supporting our customers by shortening their product development lead time by as much as one to one and a half years,” added Reckmann.
