In 2000 PPG Industries and Universal Display established a strategic relationship in 2000, and since then PPG has been the exclusive producer of UDC's PHOLED emitter materials. In 2021, the two companies announced that they will establish a new manufacturing site in Shannon, Ireland, for the production of UDC's emitters. Now UDC announced that the new fab is commencing operation.
The new production site will double PPG's production capacity of UDC's PHOLED emitters. This will also increase the company's ability to ensure uninterrupted supply of its crucial materials for the OLED industry.
