EWING, USA: Universal Display Corp., enabling energy-efficient displays and lighting with its UniversalPHOLED technology and materials, announced that the company has established a new subsidiary in Japan to better serve and support the needs of the company’s OLED display and white lighting customers and partners in the country.
The new subsidiary, Universal Display Corporation Japan KK, is headquartered at 6-12 Nishi-Shinbashi, 1-Chome, Minato-ku, Tokyo 105-0003. As part of the growth in Japan, Universal Display is pleased to announce that Dr. Kentaro Harada has joined the new subsidiary as Key Technical Account Manager, Japan.
Energy-efficient OLED lighting, enabled by the company’s UniversalPHOLED technology and materials, is emerging as a market with significant growth potential in Japan over the next few years.
