KOREA (SOUTH): Toray to expand polyester staple fiber business at Korean subsidiary

According to the plan, Toray will boost production capacity of low melt polyester staple fiber at TCK's Gumi I Plant in Gumi, Gyeongsangbuk-do by about 1.7 times to 170,000 tons/year. The additional LM polyester staple fiber production facility is expected to start production in July 2016. In addition, Toray will also increase production capacity of bi-component staple fibers of both polypropylene-polyethylene and polyester-polyethylene used to produce nonwoven fabric for personal hygiene materials, whose demand has been growing rapidly.
