Kyocera has acquired LCD manufacturer Optrex to form Kyocera Display Corporation

Kyocera offers a wide range of active matrix TFT LCD panels in sizes from 3.5 to 12.1 inches diagonal and resolutions from QVGA to SVGA.

Optrex, founded in 1976, has been focused on small and medium size LCDs in the automotive and industrial market sectors, offering a range of active matrix TFT and monochrome graphic and character LCDs.

The company's acquisition of Optrex America in Plymouth, MI, USA (now Kyocera Display America, Inc.), as well its acquisition of Optrex Europe in Babenhausen, Germany (now Kyocera Display Europe GmbH), will enable Kyocera to expand its presence in the automotive and industrial LCD markets in the Americas and Europe. The acquisition of Optrex will also enable Kyocera to complement its range of resistive and capacitive type touch screen panels with Optrex’s touch screen bonding capabilities.
