Performance Fibers To Expand Production In China

Colonial Heights, Va.-based Performance Fibers, formerly part of Honeywell International, has announced plans to build a second polyester fiber and fabric plant at its facility in China. The expansion will double production capacity for dimensionally stable polyester (DSP®) at that facility, which had doubled its original capacity with the addition of new lines earlier this year.

The new plant will produce and convert the newest generations of DSP fibers for use in automotive, tire reinforcement and other industrial and consumer applications.

"Construction is expected to be complete by the first quarter of 2006," said Greg Rogowski, president and CEO. "Additional expansions are planned, which will again double our DSP fiber and fabric capacity in China by 2008."
