Established in 1987 and headquartered in Hsinchu Science Park, Taiwan, TSMC pioneered the pure-play foundry business model by focusing solely on manufacturing customers’ products. By choosing not to design, manufacture or market any semiconductor products under its own name, the Company ensures that it never competes directly with its customers. Today, TSMC is the world’s largest semiconductor foundry, manufacturing 9,920 different products using 258 distinct technologies for 465 different customers in 2017.

With a large and diverse global customer base, TSMC-manufactured semiconductors are used in a wide variety of applications covering many segments of the computer, communications, consumer, industrial and standard semiconductor markets. Strong diversification helps to smooth fluctuations in demand, which, in turn, helps TSMC maintain higher levels of capacity utilization and profitability.

Annual capacity of the manufacturing facilities managed by TSMC and its subsidiaries exceeded 11 million 12-inch equivalent wafers in 2017. These facilities include three 12-inch wafer GIGAFAB® fabs, four 8-inch wafer fabs, and one 6-inch wafer fab in Taiwan, as well as one 12-inch wafer fab at a wholly owned subsidiary: TSMC Nanjing Company Limited, and two 8-inch wafer fabs at wholly owned subsidiaries: WaferTech in the United States and TSMC China Company Limited. In 2016, TSMC Nanjing Company Limited was established, managing a 12-inch wafer fab and a design service center.

TSMC provides customer service through its account management and engineering services offices in North America, Europe, Japan, China, and South Korea. At the end of 2017, the Company employed more than 48,000 people.

The Company is listed on the Taiwan Stock Exchange (TWSE) under ticker number 2330, and its American Depositary Shares (ADSs) are traded on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) under the symbol TSM.
