Kao Corp., Japan’s biggest maker of household products, opened a new manufacturing facility in Taiwan on Friday to raise output of skin care and hair products on the island, where growth has been “remarkable,” and for Asia as a whole.

The company said it initially invested about ¥3.3 billion (US$29.6 million) to build the factory on the premises of its 58,000-sq.-meter site in Hsinchu in northeast Taiwan, where it has been running since 1981.
