MGC to build electronic materials capacity in Thailand

BANGKOK, THAILAND: Mitsubishi Gas Chemical (MGC) Company has established a subsidiary for the production of electronic materials in the Thailand. The construction of the production plant for copper clad laminates and prepregs will begin in May 2012 and is scheduled for completion in April 2013. Following prototyping and sample evaluation, the new plant will start commercial operation by end of 2013. In recent years, MGC has considered the establishment of another overseas production in line with the reality that 80 per cent of the group’s BT products were exported.

Furthermore, MGC received requests from customers all over the world for it to establish a second production site after the temporary suspension of BT material production due to the great east Japan earthquake in March 2011. Thus, MGC decided to establish the new production subsidiary also from the perspective of business continuity plans.
