The capacity expansion of the plan of SAP plant was announced on 31 January 2012. The expansion was suspended at that time, due to the accident occurred at NIPPON SHOKUBAI Himeji Plant on 29 September 2012, in order to dedicate necessary internal resources to the recovery from the accident at Himeji plant.
