Toray to expand polypropylene spunbond capacity in China

TOKYO, JAPAN/NANTONG, CHINA: Toray Industries Inc and Toray Advanced Materials Korea Inc have decided to expand the high-performance polypropylene spunbond (PP spunbond) production facility in China at their subsidiary Toray Polytech (Nantong) Co Ltd. The facility is expected to start operation in December 2014, which will increase PP spunbond production capacity of Toray Group to about 141,000 tonne a year.

The move by Toray to extend the PP spunbond production capacity is in response to the strong demand for PP spunbond in China as well as the requirements for high-performance materials for disposable diapers and to strengthen the cost competitiveness.
