Teijin begins recovery efforts at polyester units

Teijin Limited announced that efforts to restore operations have begun at three facilities in Thailand, where operations have been suspended due to flooding since October.

The facilities are Teijin Polyester (Thailand) Limited in Pathum Thani Province, Teijin (Thailand) Limited in the Bang Pa-in Industrial Estate and Teijin Cord (Thailand) Co., Ltd. in the Rojana Industrial Park, the latter two both located in Ayutthaya Province.

Efforts to identify the level of damage to facilities and equipment are underway, following the complete removal of floodwaters from the facilities in the end of November. Teijin plans to increase the number of technical staff dispatched from Japan to support the earliest possible resumption of operations.

To minimize the impact on supply chains and deliveries, which vary by customer and product, Teijin has shifted fiber production to other plants outside Thailand, including Teijin Fibers' Matsuyama Plant in Japan, Tifico Fiber Indonesia Tbk in Indonesia and manufacturers in Taiwan.

Although Teijin personnel have been affected by the flooding, no casualty has been reported among group employees or their families.

If Teijin concludes that group performance is expected to experience a significant impact due to the effects of the flooding, relevant information will be disclosed immediately.

Teijin is a global technology-driven group operating in eight main fields: aramid fibers, carbon fibers & composites, polyester fibers, plastics, films, medical & pharmaceuticals, fiber products marketing and IT businesses.
