DSM to expand polyamide capacity in Taiwan

SITTARD, THE NETHERLANDS: DSM is to make further investments in its Kaohsiung polymerization facility in Taiwan to upgrade and develop the company’s specialty polyamide capabilities for its Novamid and Akulon polyamide engineering plastic business. The Kaohsiung site has been a part of DSM since 2010 and already produces specialty polyamide 6 and 6/66 materials for its Novamid product line. Construction has already begun and the investment is expected to be complete by the last quarter of 2012. “We are extremely committed to the polyamide business. This is crucial to our strategic intent of building a sustainable leadership position in Asia, being one of the high growth economies,” said Jayant Dhobley, President, DSM Engineering Plastics Asia Pacific.
