Spunbonded converting company established.

Japanese producers Mitsui Petrochemical Industries and Mitsui and TPI in Thailand have jointly established a new company for the purpose of converting polypropylene spunbonded nonwovens. The rising labor costs and transportation expenses of converting spunbonded nonwovens in Japan and Taiwan have made products less competitive; the new company will supply less expensive converted products made at the Thailand site.

The opening of the new company was scheduled for last June with Mitsui Petrochemical supplying 2000 tons of roll goods and importing all the converted goods to Japan for the domestic market. The company also plans to sell other finished products to Europe, the U.S. and Thailand in the future.
