January 3, 2017

Capacity added for pants, side fasten diapers in Nagoya

Oji Holdings is expanding its Nagoya, Japan diaper manufacturing site. The initial upgrade, which was completed in November 2016,  increased pants style diaper production by 40%, bringing the total production to 660 million pieces per year.

The second part of the upgrade will focus on side fastener diaper production. The addition of a new line, scheduled to be complete in September 2017, will nearly double production from 135 million pieces per year to 265 million pieces.

The expansion for side fastener diapers will target Chinese growth while the pants diaper investment is targeting domestic sales.
