German polymer firm, Covestro, has started to build up a new manufacturing line for polycarbonate films at Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate, Thailand. The total investment of more than €100-mn also includes an expansion of the associated infrastructure and logistics. The project is the first step of a global capacity increase for Covestro’s film production. Speaking at the ground-breaking ceremony, Dr. Thorsten Dreier, Global Head of Covestro´s Specialty Films Business, said, “Our main objective with this expansion is to intensify our collaboration with customers in Asia Pacific, in particular, to improve efficiency and punctual delivery. This is an excellent strategic fit, enabling fastest time-to-market, but also broadening our market access in Asia.
”The existing films facility started operations in January 2007 and produces Makrofol polycarbonate and Bayfol polycarbonate blend films, which are used in industry sectors such as security and ID cards, automotive, medical, as well as electrical and electronics. It produces a selection of grades, including new optical grades, and the new facility is designed to extend the range of products in response to market demand.
