Polyplastics to expand engineering plastics plant in Malaysia


Japan-headquartered Polyplastics Co Ltd is expanding its engineering plastics compound plant in Malaysia operated by Polyplastics Asia Pacific Sdn. Bhd. (PAP), a wholly owned local subsidiary headquartered in Kuala Lumpur.

The expansion plan calls for additional production capacity of 9,000 tonnes per year at the plant in Kuantan, Pahang State.

When expansion is completed, the plant will have a yearly production capacity of 35,000 tonnes. The additional lines will produce POM Duracon and PPS Durafide compounds. The expanded facility is scheduled for completion at the end of 2016 and commencement of commercial operation in June 2017.

The Polyplastics Group’s plants in Fuji (Japan); Dafa (Kaohsiung, Taiwan); and Nantong (China) have a combined yearly compound production capacity of 150,000 tonnes.
