Complete special BOPET line sold to Shinkong Synthetic Fibers Corporation

 

Shinkong Synthetic Fibers Corporation, a part of Shinkong Group, was founded in 1969. It is Taiwans biggest polyester manufacturer, heavily engaged in the textile applications and bottle resin business.

 

The company currently has two production plants, one at Chungli and one at Taoyuan. The Chungli plant mainly produces polyester filament and polyester polymer chips whilst the Taoyuan plant produces about 70.000 tons of PET bottle resin and has a capacity of 10,000 tons of polyester film per annum, which will soon be doubled.

 

With a future focus on added value products, PET film is becoming an increasingly important product at Shinkong Synthetic Fibers Corporation. From there it was just a small step to establish their own film production to increase profits.

 

They will produce special BOPET medium and thick films, which are used in various fields of the electronic industry (i.e. LCD panel films, touch panels, printed circuit boards, insulation films etc.) as well as in food packaging (PVC is replaced by BOPET due to environmental reasons).
