Tatung created the Tatung Einstein 8 bit home computer in the 1980's, developed and assembled in the UK.

In 2006, Tatung established the factory in Plzeň, where it produces all of its LCD TVs for the European market. Formerly, from 1998, Tatung's European head office had been located in Wijchen, Netherlands, where it produced LCD TVs and computers. Before that, Tatung had a factory in Bridgnorth near Wolverhampton, in the United Kingdom, during which time it sponsored the Wolverhampton Wanderers FC before moving in the late 1980s to the Stafford Park industrial estate in Telford.
