SINGAPORE (ICIS)--Taiwan’s Ming Dih Group is ramping up production at its 40,000 tonne/year expandable polystyrene (EPS) plant in Bangkok, Thailand, after restarting it this week, a company source said on Wednesday.

“The unit is running smoothly and we are ramping up production,” the source added.

The plant was shut for an expansion in early March and was initially scheduled to restart in April. However, the expansion was delayed by holidays in Thailand during April.

The plant’s capacity was increased by 10,000 tonnes/year during the expansion.

Ming Dih also operates a 180,000 tonne/year EPS plant in Taiwan and a 100,000 tonne/year unit in southern China.
