OSAKA -- Laptop maker Dynabook, a unit of Sharp, said Tuesday it will establish a Taiwanese subsidiary, leveraging the extensive supply network of Sharp's parent Foxconn as well as the talent pool in an industry hub.

The company will be set up in Taoyuan, a city close to Taipei, around May. Dynabook will deepen its coordination with Foxconn to procure components at a lower cost, boosting profit margins.
