LINE opens largest overseas office in Taiwan
Taipei, April 27 (CNA) LINE Corp., a Japanese supplier of mobile messaging and communication services, said Tuesday it has moved into a seven-story building in Taipei's Neihu District, its biggest office outside its home country.
An inauguration ceremony will be held May 5 for the office, which has a total floor area of 9,917 square meters, the company said in a press release.
The new office is equipped with facial recognition technology, and it has very comfortable work areas for its staff, the company said, adding that it is hoping to attract more talent.
On display on the first floor of the office building is "Mega Brown," a 4-meter-tall stuffed toy bear, which is the main character in LINE Friends, the company said.
LINE, a Tokyo-based subsidiary of Softbank Group and Naver Corporation, is mainly associated with the development of mobile applications and Internet services, particularly the LINE communication app, which was launched in June 2011 and has since grown into a diverse service that includes AI technology and fintech, according to the company.
LINE Taiwan opened its first office in Neihu in 2011 and has since moved to several different locations in the same district.
The inauguration of its new seven-story office next month will be attended by LINE Taiwan Managing Director Roger Chen (陳立人) and Kang Hyun-bin, senior vice president of Global Business Development at LINE, according to the press release.
