Invista opens expanded air bag fibre plant in Shanghai, China

SHANGHAI, CHINA: Invista successfully started expanded air bag fibre manufacturing plant in the Qingpu District of Shanghai, China. With this expansion, Invista becomes the first air bag fibre producer in Asia to exceed the 20 kilotonne per year production capacity for a single site.

The air bag fibre plant expansion is one of many investments that Invista is making in China and around the world. In May, Invista announced that it signed a Land Reservation Agreement with the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park Development Company for a nylon 6,6 polymer facility at the Shanghai Chemical Industry Park.

“On the sixth day of the sixth month, we are pleased to celebrate doubling the size of our Anlon nylon 6,6 air bag fiber manufacturing facility. This is now the largest facility of its kind in Asia, and we are pleased to share the celebration with so many distinguished guests,” said Jeff Brown, Executive Vice President, Performance Surfaces & Materials, Invista.
