SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Teijin Polyester (Thailand) has resumed product shipments from its facility in Patum Thani following a partial restart of the unit on 9 February after months of shutdown caused by flooding, its Japanese parent firm Teijin said on Monday.

Production at the Pathum Thani plant and at two other facilities in Ayutthaya province was halted in October last year, the Japanese firm said in a statement.

Teijin Polyester produces a total of 118,000 tonnes/year of polyester fibres at the three sites.

“Teijin expects to bring these facilities gradually back on line beginning in March once repairs are completed,” Teijin said.
