Chisso forms a new company in China
Dec '10
CHISSO Corporation has founded a new company in China to sell and manufacture air-through nonwoven in China to keep up with high growth rate of hygiene products in China and Asian countries.

CHISSO has been already selling and manufacturing air-through nonwoven by Guangzhou ES Fiber Co., Ltd., its subsidiary in Guangzhou, China. The customers, however, have been strongly requesting CHISSO to expand its capacity because of explosive growth of economy in China.

To meet these demands, CHISSO founded a new company, CHISSO ES ASIA (CHANGSHU) CO., LTD., in Changshu Economic Development Zone in Changshu city, Jiangsu province. CHISSO ES ASIA (CHANGSHU) will finalize the project by the end of October, 2011 and the company will have one air-through nonwoven line at 2,400 metric tons/year. The site is large enough to house 5 air-through lines and CHISSO plans to increase the capacity up to 12,000metric tons/year in the future.

CHISSO recognizes that China, Asia, and Middle East are strategically the most important regions and will actively invest and expand its fiber and nonwoven capacity in line with the growth in the regions.

CHISSO is the very first company that succeeded to commercialize thermo-bondable bicomponent fiber, well-known as `ES FIBER`, back in 1972, and has been developing technology and know-how in the relevant business areas. ES FIBER is a bicomponent fiber made of two different thermo-plastic polymers at different melting points and with sheath / core configuration for thermo-bondability.

ES FIBER is currently marketed by ES FIBERVISIONS, a sales joint venture company between FIBERVISIONS Corporation and CHISSO Corporation. Nonwovens made of ES FIBER has various benefits such as no skin irritation, no adhesives, high softness and high processability therefore highly reputed by the customers.

CHISSO, as a pioneer of bicomponent fibers, will continue to contribute a good life with its unique technology and will provide valuable products to the society.
