L.G.Philips LCD Co., a major manufacturer of liquid crystal displays, said on Sunday that it began full-scale production at its new factory in Poland to meet growing demand in Europe.

The plant, located in Kobierzyce, near Wroclaw in southwestern Poland, will produce screens mainly for 32-inch and larger LCD televisions, LG.Philips said in a statement. It is the company's second overseas factory.

The plant will assemble the screens from LCD panels produced at LG.Philips' two plants in South Korea by adding backlights and other basic components, spokeswoman Sue Kim said.

The screens will be sent to customers with nearby factories, including Royal Philips Electronics NV of the Netherlands and Japan's Matsushita Electric Industrial Co.

Philips has a TV plant in Hungary while Matsushita has one in the Czech Republic.

Japan's Toshiba Corp., which has a 19.9 percent investment in LG.Philips' Poland plant, is also constructing an LCD TV plant in the vicinity, with production scheduled to start in August 2007.
