Founded in 1992 by Taiwan's leading papermaking and printing group, YFY (1907.TW), E Ink Holdings Inc. "E Ink" (8069.TW) is the world-leading Thin-Film Transfer and ePaper provider.
Prime View International, Inc. (PVI) (now, E Ink Holdings Inc.) was the first TFT LCD company based in Taiwan. Its products include high quality small-to-medium-sized TFT LCD panels.
PVI’s parent company, the YFY group, a world leader in paper manufacturing, realized that high growth potential of digital publishing and started research efforts on alternative display solutions to link the divide between paper and electronics.
In 2005, PVI acquired the ePaper business unit from Philips and worked closely with E Ink to launch the first EPD eBooks into the market.
To increase its capacity, PVI established Transcend Optronics in YangZhou, China in 2002, for the display module manufacturing. PVI merged with the Korean TFT LCD company, Hydis Technologies in 2008. PVI then acquired E Ink Corporation in the U.S. to further integrate the ePaper supply chain in 2009.
In 2010, PVI became E Ink Holdings, Inc. The E Ink Group is now supplying ePaper modules to the global top tier eReader brand names like Amazon, Sony, Hanvon, Barnes & Noble, etc. Currently E Ink’s ePaper module has a significant global market share and all modules are manufactured by its Chinese subsidiary, Transcend Optronics.
E Ink Holdings’ corporate philosophy aims to deliver revolutionary products, user experiences, and environmental benefits through advanced technology development. With new products like color, flexible, and touch-enabled ePaper, E Ink Holdings will lead the eBook industry into the new era.
