Another project is Via, a manufacturer of intelligent visual products, which has planned to invest in an intelligent manufacturing park at TongXiang Hi-Tech Industrial Bases, an arm of the development zone.
Zhang Xinyue, founder of Via, started the business in the development zone in 2011. Zhang is an alumna of the School of Management at Xiamen University.
"The local government has cared about the development of high-tech businesses like us and has been with us over the years," Zhang said.
It is the top business environment in Xiamen and the attentive services of the development zone that encouraged Via to expand its investment, Zhang added.
With an investment of 250 million yuan, the company's intelligent manufacturing park will focus on the R&D of new energy and automatic optic inspection equipment for the semiconductor industry.
