As predicted here last week, Motorola is to sell two Far Eastern chip packaging and testing plants to Taiwan's biggest chip builder, Advanced Semiconductor Engineering (ASE). Story: Motorola spins off two factories The deal came to pass and the confirmation came over the weekend. Once ASE takes ownership of each facility, in Chung Li, Taiwan and Paju, South Korea, employing 1400 and 1000 staff, respectively, they will continue to be used by Motorola. Motorola talked a lot of stuff about reinforcing its leadership position and focusing on core competencies, but what we're talking here is essentially Motorola's realisation that, at this level at least, it's more cost-effective to outsource than to own the means of production. ®
