Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. Plans to Invest JPY 20 Billion in Japan to Expand its Silicones Business

Shin-Etsu Chemical Co., Ltd. has announced plans to invest JPY 20 billion in Japan to expand its silicones business. The objective of the new facility investments in Shin-Etsu's silicones business in Japan is to strengthen and expand its silicones facilities at each stage, from R&D and trial production to mass production, as it seeks to steadily capture the globally expanding demand for highly functional silicone products. At Shin-Etsu Chemical's Gunma Complex, the company is investing JPY 5 billion as it goes forward with the construction of a new research building adjoining its existing Silicone-Electronics Materials Research Center, and is aiming to start its operations in the spring of 2016. Furthermore, Shin-Etsu has decided to invest another JPY 12 billion at the Gunma Complex in order to carry out such projects as the construction of new production facilities that will enable the production of many kinds of silicone products in small quantities and the reinforcement of production capacity for various types of silicone products that are used in fields where demand growth is expected such as automobiles, cosmetics, chemicals and healthcare. The company will also further strengthen its integrated system that handles all processes within the Complex from R&D to mass production. Moreover, at its Naoetsu Plant in Niigata Prefecture, Shin-Etsu Chemical will invest JPY 3 billion to set up a new manufacturing facility for silicone products that will be used as a marine paint material. With these new investments totaling JPY 20 billion for its silicones business, Shin-Etsu will carry out facility investments in Japan and will supply highly functional and high-quality products globally by closely coordinating its research, production and sales capabilities. Each new facility is scheduled to be completed by March of 2017. As far as investment developments regarding the silicones business outside of Japan, in Thailand, Shin-Etsu obtained for about JPY 5 billion new industrial land adjoining its Thai silicone facilities, where a major production capacity expansion project is on-going. In addition, in the US, Shin-Etsu has established a new Technical Center in the State of New Jersey.
