Teijin Aramid is part of Teijin Limited, our Japanese parent company and the holding company of the Teijin Group. As of 1 April 2017, a significant organizational change was implemented. As part of an earlier decision to change the organizational structure of the Teijin Group, all aramid activities were combined into one global aramid business unit: Teijin Aramid. As a result, all aramid activities – production, research and sales of Technora, Teijinconex, Twaron and Endumax – have been brought together under one Management Team. As one aramid business unit, Teijin Aramid forms an important foundation that will help to strengthen the strategy of the Teijin Group as a whole.
This organizational change has turned Teijin Aramid into an even more international organization, with plants in Japan, Thailand and the Netherlands, and with research centers in Japan, Arnhem, Wuppertal and Shanghai. Our sales organization covers all regions of the World: US, South America, EMEA, Japan, China and India. The new organization employs some 1,750 people.
In addition to the specific insight we provide into Teijin Aramid’s HSE performance, our performance in terms of corporate social responsibility is reflected in the Teijin Group Integrated Report 2017.
