Taiwan Inc. moving to invest even more in Japan

Momentum builds as Advantech eyes new acquisitions

Taiwan's Advantech is gearing up for Japanese acquisitions.

TAIPEI/TOKYO -- Taiwan is turning into a high-powered financial backer of corporate Japan, with industrial computer maker Advantech seeking big buys in a continuation of a trend that kicked into gear with the 2016 acquisition of Sharp by Hon Hai Precision Industry.

Long home to contract manufacturers, Taiwan now also boasts leading industrial machinery fabricators and software developers. Team Taiwan is looking to Japan in its quest to support the so-called internet of things and other innovations.
