TOKYO, JAPAN: Teijin Limited said it has opened its technology development centre at its factory in Matsuyama, Ehime prefecture, Japan to serve as a central base for developing high-performance materials solutions for the Teijin group, effective immediately.

Integrating advanced fibre development functions previously handled by the Osaka research centre, as well related company-wide solutions development and engineering, the technology development centre will serve as a core R&D base and nexus of cross-business solutions development to fortify Teijin’s capabilities in the high-performance fibre business and support its development of composite materials and solutions combining products and services.

Teijin, under a strategic effort to strengthen long-term growth, is developing new solutions by integrating key capabilities among its diverse businesses and technologies.

The 7,700 mt sq centre will initially focus on developing solutions for high-performance composite materials and expanding its scope of monitoring services. Projects are already underway for smart wearables and super-tough lightweight structural materials to be developed by integrating high-performance materials and IT.

The technology development centre also looks forward to accelerating new business opportunities by strengthening collaborations with Teijin Product Development China Co Ltd, a yarn and textile product development site opened last year in Nantong, Jiangsu, while leveraging the Matsuyama factory’s R&D functions in plastics, carbon fibre and composites.
