TOKYO, JAPAN: Asahi Kasei said that it will expand production capacity for spunbond nonwovens in Thailand. The company will add new production line at its subsidiary Asahi Kasei Spunbond (Thailand) Co Ltd (AKST).

Together with the two existing lines, the third line of 15,000 tons/year will raise total capacity for spunbond at AKST to 50,000 tons/year.

The groundbreaking ceremony was held on March 2019, and is scheduled to start up in July 2021.

Since 1973, Asahi Kasei has supplied Eltas spunbond for use in a wide variety of applications including disposable diapers and other hygienic products, automotive and other industrial applications, and deodorizing sheets and other consumer products.

Asahi Kasei will continue to enhance its infrastructure for stable supply of spunbond in line with market growth in Asia while responding to the needs of diaper manufacturers in the region.
