BOE Display was founded in 1993, and is based in Beijing China. The company's core business is TFT-LCD production, and the company has several production lines, including a Gen-8.5 plant in Beijing. The company also makes CCFL and LED backlighting units and solar panels.
BOE has several AMOLED projects. BOE Display aimed to start mass producing AMOLED displays at its 5.5-Gen LTPS OLED fab in Ordos in the second half of 2015, but the company is still struggling with low yields, preventing it to actually starting to ship any panels. BOE is also constructing a Gen-6 LTPS LCD/AMOLED production line in Chengdu, China - with a projected investment of about $3.5 billion. The fab is scheduled for production in the first half of 2017, with a capacity of 45,000 monthly substrates (both OLEDs and LCDs).
BOE is also developing flexible and transparent OLEDs, and is also reportedly planning a 8.5 OLED TV fab in Hefei Xinzhan, with an estimated investment of $1 billion. BOE already has a Gen-8.5 pilot line in place that was used to produce 55" 4K OLED panel prototypes demonstrated back in 2014.
