Teijin Expands Twaron® Fiber Capacity

In direct response to the growing demand for Twaron® safety and protection products, The Netherlands-based Teijin Twaron, a member of Japan-based Teijin Group, is to expand its Twaron para-aramid, high-performance fiber production with the construction of a specialty spinning production line. Expected to come on-stream during the third quarter of 2005, the line will increase capacity by between 5 and 10 percent, depending on the product mix.

"Apart from the governmental projects related to safety around the globe, there is a growing trend for high-performance and sustainable solutions in many markets in which Twaron's customers are active," said Gert Frederiks, commercial director. "This expansion therefore is a logical step in the strategy of Teijin to become the leader in the high-performance fiber market. "
