Nippon Shokubai Permanently Closes Suita Plant; Plans to Build Research and Development Center in Osaka

Nippon Shokubai has ended all production at its Suita plant in Osaka and permanently closed it at the end of December 2014. The Suita plant was built in 1943 to boost production of phthalic anhydride, and it later began producing maleic anhydride. In the recent years, production capacity at the plant decreased, partly due to the transfer of its unsaturated polyester resin business to Japan Composite, a joint venture between Nippon Shokubai and Mitsui Chemicals. The company plans to build a research and development center at the same site, scheduled for completion in 2016, to bolster its R&D operations in the area.
