Teijin Frontier Co., Ltd., the Teijin Group’s fibre-product converting firm, will open a R&D facility for fibres and polyester fibres in Thailand. Teijin Frontier Thai Innovation Laboratory (TFTIL) will be located in the Thailand Science Park, a technology hub that the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) will open in January 2018.

TFTIL will mainly research polymers as raw materials for polyester and other fibres and related manufacturing and processing technologies, enabling Teijin Frontier to establish a comprehensive production framework for polyester fibres, from polymers R&D to manufacture and processing, all in Thailand. TFTIL also will collaborate with Teijin’s polymerisation and fibre’s R&D facility in Matsuyama, Japan and Teijin Product Development China Co., Ltd. in Nantong, China as three strategic R&D hubs in Asia. In addition, TFTIL will enable Teijin Frontier to easily collaborate with Thai governmental R&D bodies based in NSTDA to develop high-performance, high-quality, and cost-competitive products.

Teijin Frontier is strengthening its nurture of excellent personnel to assume key roles in an expanding range of R&D initiatives to support the company’s production and technology operations in Thailand. Through such efforts, the company expects to enhance its response to global demands for polyester fibres that offer diverse functions, applications, and markets.

Teijin Frontier has established comprehensive operations for fibre, fabric, textile-processing, and sewn-product production and sales in Thailand, the hub of Teijin Frontier’s global polyester fibre business. The company’s global polyester fibre business is supported by free trade agreements, such as the ASEAN-Japan Comprehensive Economic Partnership and the ASEAN China Free Trade Agreement. (GK)
