The new line will produce large-scale metal masks compatible with 8th-generation glass substrates, greatly improving the production efficiency of OLED displays for tablets and notebooks. Our Mihara plant in Hiroshima Prefecture is also an important center for the production of metal masks, and by working to back up this plant we aim to strengthen our Business Continuity Plan (BCP) responses.

By establishing the new production line, DNP plans to more than double its metal mask production capacity. We aim to further expand our business to tablets and notebooks by taking advantage of our superior position in maintaining the top global market share in the production of metal masks for smartphones.
