Automobile production in China reached a record high in 2016, and is projected to continue to rise substantially. As plastic compounds enable vehicle weight to be reduced by substituting for metal parts, further impetus for demand growth is driven by heightening environmental awareness and tightening environmental regulations.

Asahi Kasei is advancing a strategic global expansion plan for its engineering plastics business in the Material sector centered on automotive applications. The company currently has plastic compounds manufacturing and sales facilities in Japan, China, Thailand, Singapore, the United States, Mexico, and Germany. The new plant in Changshu will reinforce Asahi Kasei’s ability to ensure stable supply to meet both growing demand and heightening customer requirements in China, as part of an ongoing effort to enhance its global supply capability.

Asahi Kasei will continue to examine additional avenues for the further optimization of their plastic compounds manufacturing network in China, including the possibility of toll compounding.
