Toray to expand polyester staple fiber production in South Korea

TOKYO, JAPAN: Toray Industries, Inc has formulated a plan to expand the polyester staple fiber business at Toray Chemical Korea Inc, the acquisition of which Toray completed in February 2014, to pursuit synergy effects within Toray Group. According to the plan, Toray will boost production capacity of low melt polyester staple fiber (LM polyester staple fiber) at TCK’s Gumi I Plant in Gumi, Gyeongsangbuk-do by about 1.7 times to 170,000 tonne.

The additional LM polyester staple fiber production facility is expected to start production in July 2016. In addition, Toray will also increase production capacity of bi-component staple fibers of both polypropylene-polyethylene and polyester-polyethylene (bi-component fibers) used to produce nonwoven fabric for personal hygiene materials, whose demand has been growing rapidly.
