Mitsui Chemicals to expand nonwoven capacity in Japan

TOKYO, JAPAN: Mitsui Chemicals Inc said that it will build a new production facility for high-performance nonwoven fabrics, which are used mainly in premium diapers. The facility is built in the company’s production site at Nagoya, Japan.

The new facility is expected to be completed in November 2017.

Within our mid-term business plan we are positioning our healthcare business as one of our targeted business domains that drive growth, in addition to mobility, food & packaging domains. The nonwoven business, as part of the healthcare business sector, aims to further expand by supplying both of Japan and the rest of Asia to support the growth of premium diaper manufacturers there, the company said.

To meet the growing demand for high-performance nonwoven fabrics in Asia moving forward, we focus on further increases to our manufacturing facilities that would offer both of better quality and cost-competitiveness. We believe that this will further solidify our position as a leader in the high-performance nonwoven market, it said.
