TAIPEI -- Taiwan's Nanya Technology on Monday said construction of its $10.3 billion memory chip plant will be delayed for more than six months, and production will not start until 2025 at the earliest, in the latest sign that shortages of materials, equipment and construction workers are dragging on chipmakers' expansion plans.

Nanya Tech's president, Lee Pei-Ing, said the 300 billion New Taiwan dollar ($10.33 billion) plant in New Taipei City, in northern Taiwan, has also been hit by longer-than-expected environmental and other regulatory reviews.
