Teijin explains that it plans to establish a highly-efficient carbon fibre production site for automotive and aircraft applications on the acquired land to meet diversified demands and create some 220 jobs with USD 600 million worth of investment around 2030.

The Teijin Group is leveraging its core strengths in integrated high-performance materials and healthcare.

Teijin will continue to evolve, aiming to become a company that supports future society.

The Teijin Group is implementing a solutions-oriented business model by combining and integrating materials, healthcare and IT technologies as part of its long-term management vision. To realise this strategy, Teijin focuses on developing integrated high-performance material businesses for automotive and aircraft applications and has been examining an appropriate footprint in North America.
