INVISTA to build a Textile Research Center in Shanghai
Sep '08
INVISTA announced building a new research facility in Mainland China to further strengthen its ability to anticipate and address market demand for innovations in fiber and fabric applications.

The INVISTA China Textile Research Center, to be built in Qingpu District of Shanghai, will be a state of art commercial textile research center in Mainland China. It is expected to commence operations in May 2009 and is designed to serve customers in Mainland China and the rest of the Asian region.

The facility will be INVISTA's third textile research center in the world, with the other two in the U.S. and Taiwan.

“The establishment of the INVISTA China Textile Research Center demonstrates our commitment to the China and Asia markets,' said Dr. Eric Chang, Asia technology director of INVISTA Apparel."

“Through developing the latest technologies in fiber and fabric applications, INVISTA's new research center is expected to not only help accelerate the advancement of the textile industry but also seek to align with the Chinese Government's goals to nurture high-value and innovative technologies and industries.”

Focusing on application and commercialization of new fiber and fabric, the center is expected to offer comprehensive and innovative solutions to customers for every major aspect of the production process, ranging from yarn processing, knitting, dyeing to finishing.

The proximity of the center to customers' operations is anticipated to boost their confidence in the development and application of new fabrics. Customers should also benefit by enjoying cost savings in research and development.

With a planned floor area of over 3,000 square meters, the facility will be operated by INVISTA Fiber (Shanghai) Company Limited on the same site as the company's spandex plant in the Qingpu District.

INVISTA is the world's largest producer of nylon and spandex. Its innovations in the nylon, spandex, polyester and specialty materials industries play an integral part in items that touch people's lives every day.
