Increase of Twaron aramid yarn capacity by 25 %
Growing the aramid business is one of the Teijin Group's key strategies, with an expected growth rate of 8 % per year. Teijin Aramid aims to capture a substantial part of the global market growth, which should eventually lead to a future market share bigger than 50 %.
Several substantial investments are planned to increase production capacity which includes implementing the latest technology.
As a first step, Teijin Aramid is currently implementing a new spinning technology at its Twaron facility in Emmen/Netherlands. The extra capacity of that investment will become available as of May 2018.
