Asahi Kasei Plastics Invests in Manufacturing Expansion

Asahi Kasei Plastics North America, Inc., Fowlerville, MI, USA, is undergoing a major expansion program to accommodate increased business with the PA66 and PA66+6i (trade name: Leona) and mPPE (trade name: Xyron) engineering plastics product families. Production capacity will increase 30% with the addition of a new compounding line and peripheral equipment. The company is also adding an additional line in the lab for R&D, new product development and improved customer support. In addition to the latest state-of-the art equipment and technology, the USD 5.5 million investment supports ten new jobs for skilled trades and support personnel. Asahi Kasei Plastics is also adding six new positions in sales, marketing and development to support growth opportunities. This investment comes on the heels of a USD 3 million investment in 2010 to upgrade existing production lines to accommodate the growing business.
