Japanese Materials Group in Germany

Gründel).

The Japanese materials Group Toray Industries, Inc. held the opening ceremony of its new Automotive Center Europe (AMCEU”), established in the suburbs of Munich, Germany, with guests representing the government of the state of Bavaria, automobile manufacturers and Tier 1 automotive suppliers. The facility will serve as technological development base of Toray Group to expand its Green Innovation (GR) Business in Europe.

The company has been pursuing the development of new products and businesses through new materials and technologies based on its four core technologies (organic synthetic chemistry, polymer chemistry, biotechnology, nanotechnology). These will contribute towards solving global-scale social issues such as environmental, resource and energy problems as well as realizing a society of health and longevity. Further Toray is engaged in business activities spread across various fields such as fibers, resins, chemicals, films, carbon fiber and water treatment in Europe with 21 bases in nine countries.

The newly opened AMCEU is now providing Toray’s cross-functional support to automotive OEMs and suppliers in the area Western Europe which is known as the worldwide leading region for automobile development. Toray will not only promote joint development activities employing its advanced technologies and materials, it will as well support all stages from concept through design with all analytical, molding, simulation and processing technologies.

Historically, Toray established the Automotive Material Strategic Planning Department, which functions as the contact office for the company in 2006, and further in 2008 it established the Automotive Center (AMC, location: Nagoya) as a technical support. These two have a cross-functional setup across the various technological, sales and research departments within the entire Group and affiliated companies.
