DyStar Is Transferring Textile Chemical Production to Nanjing
In order to strengthen its manufacturing capability for textile chemicals, DyStar plans to transfer the production from its plant in Hangzhou to the multi-purpose manufacturing site in Nanjing.
The plant in Nanjing started the production of dyes in 2006. Since then it has been expanded and almost 14.000 tons of textile dyes are now produced in Nanjing each year. The plan for next year is to increase production to about 20.000 tons.
This transfer will allow for increased scope in terms of chemical synthesis together with strict quality control in the extensive laboratory facilities.
During the last few years DyStar has been strongly focused on measuring and improving its environmental and social performance and for the last two years has published an annual sustainability report.
The production transfer is planned for the second half of 2013.
