Singapore Deputy Prime Minister and Coordinating Minister for National Security & Minister for Home Affairs, Mr. Teo Chee Hean, conferred the award to STATS ChipPAC during a ceremony held earlier today.

The DPIP award is an exclusive and prestigious corporate award initiated by the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB) in 1991 to recognise companies for their contributions to Singapore's economic growth and their commitment to promote the country's social and community interests.

We are appreciative of STATS ChipPAC's commitment to Singapore as its home for business and innovation," said Mr. Leo Yip, Chairman, Singapore Economic Development Board.

Since its foundation in Singapore in 1994, STATS ChipPAC has transformed into a top tier OSAT company with more than 10,000 employees worldwide and a global manufacturing footprint that encompasses Singapore, South Korea, China and Taiwan. With nearly 3,000 employees located in Singapore, STATS ChipPAC has invested approximately US$1.9 billion (S$2.4 billion) in Singapore to date to expand its technology offerings and manufacturing capacity.

"We are deeply honoured to receive the Singapore Government's highly exclusive and prestigious corporate award. Our presence and investment in Singapore have grown tremendously over the last 20 years and today we are leading the semiconductor industry in a number of breakthrough technology and manufacturing achievements. From our technology leadership in fan-out wafer level packages to our new FlexLine™ manufacturing method, STATS ChipPAC is successfully driving innovation in advanced wafer level packaging for our customers," said Tan Lay Koon, President and Chief Executive Officer, STATS ChipPAC.
