Nantong Teijin plant celebrates 20 years of success in China

YarnsandFibers News Bureau 2014-04-22 10:30:00 – China

Teijin Group, first Japanese company to establish polyester plant Nantong Teijin Co. Ltd., way back in March 1994 which handles the weaving and dyeing of recyclable polyester textiles and the manufacture and processing of polyester textiles. The plant has completed 20 years of success in China.

With the establishment of Nantong Teijin, Teijin Group became the first Japanese to operate in the Nantong Economic & Technological Development Zone.

The China-based plant set up in 1994 to dye and sell polyester, began with lining material in 1995 and then outer material in 1997. The facility added fabric weaving in 1998 and has continued to expand ever since. Over the years, Teijin has set up additional companies in the zone, focusing on industrial materials for the automotive industry.

Technical Center Asia was formed in Shanghai in April 2013 as a base for developing applications, technologies and services involving aramid textiles. To further speed up product development, the Teijin Group recently opened the Teijin (China) Product Development Center, turning the Group’s China base into a one-stop operation for manufacturing, applications development and sales.

In March 2012, the Teijin Group entered into an agreement with the China Chemical Fibers Association to partner in advancing China’s textile industry while expanding the company’s presence. As the first phase of this partnership, the Teijin Group established Zhejiang Jiaren New Materials Co. Ltd. in Shaoxing, Zhejiang, to manufacture and sell textiles made with chemically recycled polyester.

The Group is targeting further growth by expanding its bases for manufacturing and development and forming strategic alliances with Chinese partners. Nantong Teijin, now entering its third decade, will serve as a key center in this strategy by helping to break new ground for China’s chemical fiber industry.

The Teijin Group has made China a top-priority market in its growth strategy over the medium- to long-term
