Kyocera acquires Optrex, forms Kyocera Display Corporation

The acquisition of Optrex will also enable Kyocera to complement its range of resistive and capacitive type touch screen panels with Optrex's touch screen bonding capabilities.

The company's acquisition of Optrex America in Plymouth, MI, USA (now Kyocera Display America, Inc.), as well its acquisition of Optrex Europe in Babenhausen, Germany (now Kyocera Display Europe GmbH), will enable Kyocera to expand its presence in the automotive and industrial LCD markets in the Americas and Europe.

"We are confident that there will be a strong synergy between the product offerings, manufacturing infrastructure, business strategy and market segments of Kyocera and Optrex," said Akihiko Ikeda, President of Kyocera Display Corporation. "It will benefit the customers of both companies and give us the capability for strong growth in the years ahead."
