The world’s No. 1 camera maker, Canon, is expanding its production in Taiwan by investing more than one billion US dollars ($1.05B) for a new plant which began construction this month and another to be constructed in August.

Canon’s Taichung Plant in central Taiwan will begin production in the second half of next year, providing jobs to 3,000 workers.

The other plant will be built in the Chiayi Dapumei Intelligent Industrial Park in southern Taiwan. It will also begin production in the latter half of 2012, employing another 3,000 to 4,000 workers.

Rising demand for digital single-lens-reflex (DSLR) cameras and the crippling effects of the Great East Japan Earthquake in March 11, 2011 has prompted Canon to expand its overseas production.
