Polyplastics sets up new compounding firm in China


TOKYO, JAPAN: Polyplastics Co Ltd will increase its compound capacity with the aim to strength its flexible supply system especially in China market. This is implemented by two projects in Taiwan and Nantong in China.

Firstly, Polyplastics Taiwan Co Ltd, Dafa plant, Kaohsiung will increase its compound capacity from 14,000 metric tonne/year to 35,000 metric tonne/year mainly for polybutylene terephthalate. Its operation will be started in January 2012.

Secondly, Polyplastics will establish its own brand new compounding company on the same site as PTM Engineering Plastics (Nantong) Co Ltd, in Nantong, Jiangsu province, China. In July, Polyplastics started making preparations for establishing a new company. It will compound four resins - polyoxymethylene (POM), polybutylene terephthalate (PBT), polyphenylene sulfide (PPS) and liquid crystal polymer (LCP). Its operation will be started with the capacity of 9,000 metric tonne/year in autumn 2013 and it will be expanded time to time. As a result of these investments, the group’s compounding capacity will total about 141,000 metric tonne/year.

By implementing these projects, Polyplastics will respond to the demand of China market and improve customer satisfaction by shortening lead time and reducing transportation costs.
