TSMC (Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company) is located in the Hsin-Chu Science-Based Industrial Park in what is referred to as Taiwan's "Silicon Valley." The company is listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange (TSE) and on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the trading symbol of TSM.
It is not by chance that TSMC is the world's largest and most successful dedicated independent semiconductor foundry . It is by plan and by charter. As the first "pure play" foundry company, we have experienced strong growth by being a true partner with our customers and by not competing against them by designing and manufacturing our own brand of IC products.
Companies from around the world have trusted TSMC with their integrated circuit manufacturing needs since we were founded in 1987 and we continue to work hard at earning that trust every day.
