Honeywell ups polyester capacity in China
Honeywell has announced that it will double its dimensionally stable polyester production in Kaiping, China, to meet growing demand for its products and services in the Asian marketplace. The added capacity will produce the latest generations of Honeywell’s DSP® fibres for tyre reinforcement and other end uses. “This is another example of our commitment to the global tyre industry and our customers worldwide,” said Greg Rogowski, General Manager, Performance Fibers.
“As the only polyester fibre supplier with manufacturing facilities in Asia, Europe and North America, we continue to make investments in technology to meet the needs of our customers, wherever they are located.” The plant expansion is expected to be complete by late 2004..
