The ES FiberVisions joint venture is the world’s largest producer of polyolefin bicomponent fibres and has production facilities in China, Denmark, Japan, Thailand and the US.
Growth in Asia is being further supported with a previously announced expansion of the ES FiberVisions Suzhou Co Ltd plant in Jiangsu Province, China. This facility started production in 2014. The expansion will double its capacity to over 28,000 tonnes per year and is expected to be completed in the summer of 2018. A ground-breaking ceremony for a new warehouse and ancillary facilities was held in mid-December 2016.
“With this investment in Suzhou, we will accelerate our growth in China and Asia and will secure the capacity that meets the strong demand for our high quality bicomponent fibres. As a pioneer of bicomponent fibre, ES FiberVisions continues to be the leading supplier in the world,” informed Yozo Shimomura, chairman of ESFV and managing executive officer of JNC.
