Capital investment: 10 billion yen (for equipment and building)

Location: Kureha Iwaki Factory, Fukushima, Japan

With the capacity expansion, Kureha aims to further strengthen its manufacturing capability to reliably and efficiently supply customers differentiated quality PPS resins. The company will also continue to collaborate with its business partner, Polyplastics Co., in order to maintain an advantageous position in the growing PPS market.
