Ube to expand polycarbonate diol production in Thailand

The completion of the new production facility in Thailand will bring the UBE Group's annual production capacity up to 11,000 t, including 2,000 t in Japan, 6,000 t in Spain, and the 3,000 t in Thailand. With the addition of the new facility, the UBE Group will strengthen its global supply network as the largest manufacturer of PCD in the world. Since the UBE Group itself manufactures the principal components used to make PCD--1,6-hexanediol and dimethyl carboxylate (DMC) - its PCD is highly cost competitive. The group will also focus on developing new grades of PCD that meet the needs of users and on providing customer support, by pursuing enhanced global technical cooperation among its operations in Japan, Spain, and Thailand. The group intends to make the most of these strengths to take advantage of market growth and reinforce its position as the world's top PCD manufacturer.
