Teijin Aramid in Arnhem has started a new department, Business Incubation & Development, that will focus on the development of new markets, with new products and technologies.
Business Incubation and Development will play a role between Research & Development and the global marketing and commercialization of Teijin's aramid products. On the one hand, the department will focus on a number of sectors where the Teijin aramid products and applications already hold a good reputation, and on the other it will look for new markets and new products and product applications. Before this change, the business incubation & development activities formed part of Marketing and Sales.
The sectors Teijin Aramid currently operates in include the automotive, construction, defense, aviation, cable, ballistics, optical cable and offshore industries.
