Rexchip is Now Micron
Micron finalized an agreement to acquire Rexchip Electronics in July 2013—helping make Micron the second-largest foreign employer in Taiwan and the second-largest memory company in the world. The added capacity from the highly-efficient, 300mm DRAM fabrication facility manufacturing in Taiwan, together with the talent and expertise of the integrating team members, enables us to strengthen our memory portfolio—and our support to the Asia region.
We look forward to leveraging our combined manufacturing strengths to drive greater innovation with our customers.
