UMC Expands Global Customer Service Network with India Office

Hsinchu, Taiwan and Andhra Pradesh, India

UMC (NYSE:UMC)(TSE:2303), a leading global semiconductor foundry, has announced plans to open a customer support office in India's Hyderabad Technology Park. The new office will provide design support services for India-based customers as well as for UMC customers who operate design centers in the area. The proximity of UMC's new office to its customers in India will create working synergies that will help accelerate the design-in of their products into UMC's process technologies to shorten time-to-manufacturing.

Yeshwant Mehta, vice president of engineering, UMC India Design Support Center, said, "Over the last ten years, international IDMs and fabless design companies have established many design centers in India. Due to the cooperative nature of the foundry business, it is important for us to be close to our customers in order to provide immediate support during the important design-in phase. UMC's new office will offer our many customers operating in India easy access to our comprehensive design support resources to help streamline their SoC design process. India also represents a strategic geographic location for a new office due to its potential for becoming the next major market for the consumption of IC products."

India provides a rich-talent pool of highly-skilled engineers and solid infrastructure to support high-technology companies operating in the country. The India office enhances UMC's global customer design support network, which also includes offices in Japan, Taiwan, and Sunnyvale, California. The India office, expected to open in Q2 2007, will employ locally-hired engineers.
