Teijin to sell its GH Craft composites business in Japan

| By Mary Bailey

Teijin Ltd. (Toyko)has agreed to sell its entire stake in GH Craft Co., a subsidiary of Teijin’s composites business in Japan, to TIP Composite Co., Ltd., a manufacturer headquartered in Matsumoto City, Japan.  Teijin acquired GH Craft in July 2008 as part of its downstream strategy. GH Craft is involved in the design, prototyping and evaluation of composites materials, with focus on highly demanding applications in the aerospace, railway and automotive industries.

TIP composite manufactures and sells composite materials for a wide range of industries. TIP composite has already collaborated on selected projects with GH Craft. Now, by obtaining GH Craft’s knowledge and technology, TIP composite is expected to grow its business significantly.  The share transfer is scheduled for September 7, 2023. The impact of this transaction on Teijin’s consolidated financial results for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2024, is expected to be minor.
