DIC Corporation to Establish New Polymer Technical Facility in Thailand

DIC Corporation has announced that it will establish a new polymer technical facility in Thailand. The purpose of the new facility, the Polymer Technical Center-Asia Pacific, is to reinforce company's ability to provide polymer products refined to meet the needs of customers in the burgeoning Asia-Pacific region. As used here, the term 'Asia-Pacific region' excludes Japan and the People's Republic of China (PRC). By establishing a local technical support facility and concentrating investment and resources, the company aims to create a service framework that will allow it to respond swiftly to local market requirements and accelerate efforts to expand overseas sales of polymer products, a key strategic focus. The new facility will also be important from a human resources perspective, enabling DIC to train local technical staff, thereby enhancing its technological prowess in the Asia-Pacific region, and to foster employees capable of functioning effectively in a global business setting. The Polymer Technical Center-Asia Pacific will be situated within the site occupied by Siam Chemical Industry's plant in the Bangpoo Industrial Estate, in Samut Prakan Province, which neighbors Bangkok. Looking ahead, the Polymer Technical Center-Asia Pacific will oversee and direct technical aspects of the company's polymers business in the Asia-Pacific region, which is expected to continue seeing robust demand. As such, the facility will promote R&D in line with themes tailored to the needs of regional customers.
