Chisso Corp. has founded a new company in China to sell and manufacture air-through nonwoven in China to keep up with the high growth rate of hygiene products in China and Asian countries.
Chisso has been selling and manufacturing air-through nonwovens by Guangzhou ES Fiber Co., Ltd., its subsidiary in Guangzhou, China.
To meet customer demands, Chisso has founded Chisso Es Asia (Changshu) Co. Ltd. in the Changshu Economic Development Zone in Changshu city, Jiangsu province. The project will be finalized 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 five air-through lines and Chisso plans to increase the capacity up to 12,000 metric tons/year in the future.
Chisso recognizes that China, Asia and the 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.
