Flexible LCD company FlexEnable raised up to $25m Series B fund

February 25, 2022 by Jennifer Colegrove Ph.D. Principal Analyst, Touch Display Research Inc.

This week, FlexEnable, the leader in the development and industrialization of flexible organic electronics, has raised $11M Series B financing. Coretronic, a major Taiwanese LCD backlight module manufacturer, has made a strategic investment.

Touch Display Research interviewed Mr. Chuck Milligan, CEO of FlexEnable recently. Mr. Milligan said: “Having industry heavyweight Coretronic on board as an investor and partner is further validation of both FlexEnable’s business model and our technology leadership in the materials and processes which enable volume production of unique flexible optical modules and displays. As a principal player in the LCD supply chain, Coretronic’s deep industry expertise will be a great benefit to us as we now move from production setup to mass production. We are very excited to have strong new investors on board, and very grateful for the on-going support from Rusnano and Novares, who have been instrumental in enabling us to develop our technology and great commercial projects over the past years.” 

The company already has four active technology transfer programs underway with several leading display manufacturers in Asia, with first volume production ramp starting in the second half of 2022. 

In the “Flexible Display & Flexible Touch Technologies, Supply Chain and Market Forecast 2018 Report (3rd Edition),” Touch Display Research analyzed over 10 flexible display technologies in 13 application markets, with detail of substrate material type and form factor. This report profiles over 270 companies working on flexible display and flexible touch screens.
