Asahi Kasei opens ASEAN HQ

On 1 August 2019 synthetic rubber manufacturer Asahi Kasei began operating Asahi Kasei Asia Pacific Co., Ltd. (AKAP), a new regional headquarters for business in the ASEAN region based in Thailand.

Located in Bangkok, Thailand, home to many Asahi Kasei affiliates and featuring superior regional accessibility, AKAP will contribute to further growth of the Asahi Kasei Group’s business in the ASEAN region through enhanced marketing and management functions while supporting the operations of each entity, advancing human resources development, facilitating coordination among the different entities, and raising operational efficiency.

Asahi Kasei currently has 16 entities in 5 ASEAN countries offering high value-added products such as materials for automotive, apparel, and hygienic markets. With its steady population growth and ongoing economic expansion, ASEAN is not only an important region for manufacturing but also becoming a key market. It was therefore determined that a regional headquarters for Asahi Kasei Group operations in the ASEAN region would enable increasingly diverse and complex risks to be effectively managed.
