Invista Adds Nylon Capacity In Canada

Invista, Wichita, Kan., has added 5 kilotons of capacity at its plant in Canada, which produces nylon 6,6 yarns for airbags and other industrial applications. The company reports the Kingston, Ontario, plant’s capacity increase is in response to the North American automotive industry’s growing need for super-high-tenacity, low-decitex-per-filament yarns for protective airbags, especially side airbags.

“This investment represents another significant step in the evolution and global growth of our airbag business,” said Jeff Brown, airbag business director, Invista. “I am delighted to be able to celebrate our project team’s success and congratulate the Kingston operations team, which continues to demonstrate its commitment to achieving the goals of our business.”

The plant began producing first-grade material within 36 hours of start-up, which occurred 10 days ahead of schedule.
