Covestro breaks ground on new production line in Thailand

December 22, 2018 |

In Germany, Covestro has started to build up a new manufacturing line for polycarbonate films at Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate, Thailand. The project is the first step of a global capacity increase for Covestro´s film production. The total investment of more than EUR 100 million also includes an expansion of the associated infrastructure and logistics.

With this new capacity, the company will serve the fast growing demand in Asia Pacific and strengthen its own position as a market leader.

“Our existing films plant in Map Ta Phut has been a high-performing and valued facility,” said Dr. Thorsten Dreier, Global Head of Covestro´s Specialty Films Business, at the ground-breaking ceremony. “Our main objective with this expansion is to intensify our collaboration with customers in Asia Pacific, in particular, to improve efficiency and punctual delivery. With market-focused innovations and a stronger customer orientation we want to drive growth for Covestro.”
