Idemitsu increases sales.
Japanese manufacturer Idemistsu Petrochemical has seen sales
increase from [yen]1.5 billion in 1992 to an expected [yen]2 billion
this year. With a capacity of 1200 tons, approximately 60% of the
company's spunbonded nonwovens are designed for thinner goods, with
the remaining 40% targeting thicker applications. Expansion plans to
further double capacity in the coming years are under evaluation. The
company also plans to change the current 70/30 ratio of roll goods
manufacturing to converted goods to a 50/50 ratio.
