Mitsui to expand polypropylene production in US &Mexico

Nov '13
The Mitsui Chemicals Group targets strengthening and further production expansion of its already global top class competitive polypropylene for automotive materials, currently manufactured in eight major world markets (Japan, United States, Mexico, Brazil, Europe, India, Thailand, and China).

Although the North American automotive industry was negatively impacted by the Global Financial Crisis, the market has returned to normalcy with forecasts of significant growth in the future.

“The planned augmentation will strengthen Mitsui Chemicals' current top class position in the North American market and thereby make it better able to contribute to global strategies of automobile manufacturers,” says Akio Ayukawa, Managing Executive Officer at Mitsui Chemicals.“In addition, by reinforcing R&D functions at strategic sites, Mitsui Chemicals will strengthen its ability to support diverse local market strategies of automobile manufacturers.”

Mitsui Chemicals and Prime Polymer will continue to strategically intensify and expand operations through ongoing collaboration and reinforcement of production, sales, and technological support structures necessary in providing state-of-the-art, performance-driven materials.
