U.S. memory maker Patriot Memory is going to build a DRAM and NAND flash memory fab in Taiwan, DigiTimes reports.
Initial plans for the plant involve an investment of NT$100 million (US$3.08 million) to set up two production lines, the company said.

Patriot, which set up a branch office in Taiwan in 2004, has outsourced most of its production for DRAM modules and NAND flash products.

But the fast growth in both segments has prompted the company to set up its own production facilities in Taiwan, which will be the company's Asia-Pacific operations center and one of its global production bases, the company said.
