The investment was announced in March 2016 and from now on the extra production line at the Technora production facility in Matsuyama, Japan, is ready to produce on full capacity. Technora aramid fiber features high tensile strength and resistance to impact, fatigue, chemicals, moisture and heat. The Technora product celebrates its 30 year anniversary this year after the official introduction in 1987.

Gert Frederiks, CEO & President of Teijin Aramid BV: “With the expansion of our Technora capacity we are able to meet the growing market demand for this unique high performance product. We are working on very interesting developments in offshore such as cables for lifting applications. The product has proven itself for already 30 years now and is used in many different applications and markets.”

In the past years, 5% of the copmany’s annual revenue has been invested into R&D activities. Recently, the company also announced it is expanding its aramid production capacity for its Twaron super fiber. It will invest in new spinning technology at the Twaron facility in Emmen, the Netherlands, starting up in the first quarter of 2019.
