Air Liquide electronics has decided to invest in a new equipment assembly centre in the Taiwan science park at Taichung, aimed at the electronics industry.

This new division will be called Air Liquide Electronics Systems Asia (ALES Asia), and will complement the ALES equipment design and manufacturing site located near Grenoble, France.

ALES Asia will be assembling distribution equipment for the extremely high-purity fluids used in electronics and flat panels manufacturing.

Christophe Fontaine, vice president electronics, Air Liquide, said: $quot;These new investments in Asia support our recent sales wins, especially in Taiwan, where leaders in the electronics industry have put their trust in Air Liquide.$quot;
