SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Japanese producer Teijin said on Thursday it has resumed full-scale operations at its three polyester facilities in Thailand, more than a year since production was impacted by flooding.

The plant that manufactures polyester filament yarn and stable fibre at Bang Pa-in Industrial Estate in Ayutthaya province returned to full production on 31 October 2012. Operations at this unit were suspended on 12 October 2011.

It was the last among the three units to resume full operations, Teijin said in a statement.

Another facility in Ayutthaya - at the Rojana Industrial Park - operated by Teijin Cord (Thailand) completely restarted in August, following a shutdown on 8 October 2011, the company said.

The third facility located at Pathum Thani province and operated by Teijin Polyester (Thailand) resumed full production on 28 September 2012, after being shut on 16 October last year, Teijin said.

Plant capacities were not provided.

“With these three facilities operating normally, output will focus on high-profit, high-performance products,” Teijin said.
