DIC Corporation Plans to Build PPS Compounds Plant in Zhangjiagang, China

DIC Corporation announced plans to build a polyphenylene sulfide, or PPS, compounds plant in the People's Republic of China, or PRC, in the city of Zhangjiagang, Jiangsu Province. The new plant, total investment in which will be approximately RMB 77.3 million, will be located within the site occupied by wholly owned subsidiary DIC Zhangjiagang Chemicals Co. Ltd., which produces synthetic resins, among others. Annual production capacity will be 6,000 tons. Construction is expected to begin as soon as official building permits are secured, and to be completed by the end of 2015. New PPS compounds plant in Zhangjiagang will also deploy a production control system that enables integrated computerized control of production lines and monitoring processes, helping to improve the safety and precision of production activities, as well as to increase efficiency and yield rates. This system is already in use at company PPS compounds plant in Austria. The company expects the system's deployment at the new plant to facilitate achievement of an operating rate in excess of 60% before the end of 2016, the first full year after the facility's completion. Additionally, in July 2014 the company will open a new technical center in Shanghai, a move aimed at reinforcing company after-sales service configuration in the PRC. The center will provide broad-based customer support, including in such areas as the fabrication of metal molds and the molding of PPS compounds, helping company to build strong bonds of trust with customers and expand sales in the local market, as well as to create a solid and more globally focused operating foundation.
