As the worlds third largest manufacturer of large-size thin film transistor liquid crystal display panels (TFT-LCD), AUOs values are simple;
Continuing dedication to Technology Innovations and Quality Control. Customers are our partners in business, not just a client. Protecting our community with on-going efforts for Environmental Preservation. In pursuit of Improved Lifestyles.
AU Optronics(에이유 옵트로닉스 코리아 유한회사) has experienced rapid growth over the years. In September of 2001, AU Optronics was formed with the merger of Acer Display Technology, Inc., and Unipac Optoelectronics Corporation. This marriage has been one made in heaven, combining the best of both worlds in TFT-LCD technologies, to form one of only few producers able to provide small and large sized display panels. AUO generated over USD2 billion in sales revenues in 2002 and has over 10,000 employees in its global operations - Taiwan, USA, Japan, and China.
Since the introduction of the TFT-LCD for notebook computers in 1991, significant improvements have been made on its performance and cost. Consumers demand for Flat Panel, lightweight products has continued to grow; ranging from mobile phones to flat panel television. Today, TFT-LCD is the most popular flat panel used for notebook computers and other electronic products.
Since the invention of the television, cathode ray tube screen technology has been the most widely used display technology for large-size displays. We believe that TFT-LCDs, compared to cathode ray tube screens, offer superior product features, such as:
Flat and thin screens
Stable picture quality with no flickering
Lower power consumption
According to DisplaySearch, a recognized market research and consulting firm for this industry, global shipments for notebook computer TFT-LCD panels has grown from 11.4 million units in 1989 to 29.2 million units in 2002 and is estimated to grow to 293.8 million units by 2007. Looking forward, the trend is going toward the replacement of traditional television for TFT-LCD TV. As you can imagine, the market for television is phenomenal. AUO is committed to be the global leader and is dedicated to the continuation of innovating flat display technologies for the enrichment of lifestyles to all.

[Quality Control Policy
All of our assembly lines have carefully implemented quality inspection and testing procedures. Statistical process control samples measurements to monitor and control the production processes. Outgoing quality controls are performed by sampling plans, ongoing reliability tests covering a wide range of application conditions, in-process quality control to prevent potential quality deviations, and other programs designed for process measurement and improvement, reduction of manufacturing costs, maintenance of on-time delivery, increasing in-process yields and improving field reliability of our products.
Our quality control programs have received accredited International Standards Organization ISO 9001 certifications, as well as qualifications from our customers. In April 2001, ADT was named " Top TFT-LCD Supplier" in a survey conducted by DisplaySearch of 22 brand and OEM manufacturers of notebooks and computer monitors. After its merger with Unipac, our values have not changed and we continue maintain strict quality standards to offer our customers the best panels in the market.
