TPV Technology

Hong Kong-based TPV is one of the world's top producers of old-fashioned cathode-ray tub monitors for PCs. Unfortunately for TPV, those clunky monitors are getting eclipsed by slimmer flat-screens with liquid crystal displays. So TPV is now trying to become a player in the LCD market. In December, it reached a deal with Philips to take over the Dutch giant's monitor business, with factories in China, Hungary, and Brazil. The deal should further the ambitions of TPV's main shareholder, BOE Technology, a Beijing-based company that aims to make China a player in the LCD industry.
