The firm is installing a new Chinese manufacturing facility which will have the annual capacity to supply two million two-inch equivalent pieces of sapphire wafers to the LED industry.

LDK Solar, a manufacturer of multicrystalline silicon solar wafers and PV products, has invested approximately $40 million to establish a new manufacturing plant in Nanchang City, Jiangxi Province in China.

This new manufacturing facility will have capacity to supply two million two-inch equivalent pieces of sapphire wafers per year and be positioned to capture the growing opportunities in the LED industry.
