CLARK FREEPORT — Liquid crystal display (LCD) maker Nanox Philippines and tire manufacturer Yokohama Tire Philippines were this free port’s top exporters as of June, reports to Clark Development Corp. showed.


In June alone, Nanox shipped out $19.5 million worth of LCDs, raising its export value since 2004 to more than $500 million, according to the CDC reports.


It brought out $192 million worth of products from January to May 2007.


Yokohama’s exports reached $14.9 million in June, adding to $67.8 million worth of tires it sold from January to May.


The other top exporters in June included garments firms Smart Shirts Philippines, $5.9 million; Crismina Garments, $2.7 million; and electronic firm L and K Industries Phils., $1.9 million.


Exports from top 20 Clark-based exporters reached $50.9 million in June, CDC president Levy Laus said, citing the reports from the enterprise operations department of Clark Development Corp.


The 83 exporting firms here sold overseas more than $335 million worth of goods from January to May 2007.


With that trend in export value, Clark might surpass the $1.6 billion output in 2006, Laus said.
