Lenzing plans to invest in Thailand

Lenzing, a leading supplier of high-quality, botanic cellulose fibres, ranging from dissolving pulp to standard and specialty cellulose fibres, to the textile and nonwovens industry, and headquartered in Austria, has announced plans to invest in Thailand, to substantially increase its share of specialty fibres to, thereby, grow its revenue.

Following the expansion drive already underway in Lenzing and Heiligenkreuz, Grimsby (Great Britain) and Mobile, Alabama (US), the supervisory board of Lenzing AG approved the proposal of the Management Board yesterday to build the next state-of-the-art facility to produce lyocell fibres in Thailand.

For this purpose, Lenzing is establishing a subsidiary in Thailand and purchasing a commercial property in Industrial Park 304 located in Prachinburi near Bangkok. In the coming months, the required permits and licenses as well as technical planning will be finalised. A definitive decision on constructing the new production plant will be made in the first quarter of 2018. Completion is scheduled for the end of 2020.

The selection of Industrial Park 304 in Prachinburi was based on its excellent overall infrastructure, outstanding expansion opportunities, and the sustainable biogenic energy supply. Similar to the plant in Mobile, the planned production facility will be constructed on the basis of the latest state-of-the-art technology and feature a capacity of up to 100,000 tons annually. This site will strengthen the worldwide lyocell network of the Lenzing Group and enable its global customers to source Tencel branded fibres from Europe, North America, and Asia.

Lenzing CEO Stefan Doboczky said, “The planned expansion underscores our commitment to support the business growth of our customers, which will result in their offering even more environmentally friendly products by using Tencel fibres, the world’s most sustainable botanic fibres. The expansion to Thailand represents the next consistent step in the implementation of our sCore TEN strategy as a means of increasing the share of specialty fibres and expanding our geographical footprint.” (GK)
