Short Take: Philips Semiconductors to build Singapore plant

Philips Semiconductors will build a $1.2 billion chip fabrication plant with Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing and the investment arm of Singapore's economic development board. Construction in Singapore is slated to start in early 1999. The plant will employ 875 people when production of 0.25 and 0.18 micron chips peaks in 2003. Philips will own 48 percent of the venture, while TSMC will hold 32 percent and EDB Investments 20 percent.
