LONDON (ICIS)--DuPont Teijin Films has completed the restructuring of its US and European operations that started in 2009 after consolidating its US-based polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film production to one location, Japan-based Teijin said on Monday.
DuPont Teijin Films, a global joint-venture partnership between Teijin and US-based DuPont, has consolidated production of PET film at its plant in Hopewell, Virginia, in the US, following the permanent closure of a PET film production plant in Florence, South Carolina, where operations had been gradually phased out since 2009.
The company also closed a general-purpose film plant in Circleville, Ohio, in February 2009 and one line at a plant in Luxembourg in June 2009, it added.
“The Hopewell plant's advanced technical capabilities and high productivity will enable DuPont Teijin Films to fully meet needs in electronics, healthcare and other industries, including emerging markets for green technologies such as photovoltaics,” Teijin said in a statement.
