Japan U-Pica plans to expand its unsaturated polyester resin production in China

Japan resin producer U-Pica plans to double its fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) raw materials production capacity in China before the 2014 Spring Festival (Chinese New Year).

The company’s Jiangsu Factory will build a new production line to expand the products varieties.

FRP mainly used in the building materials industry. Due to the shrinkage in the Japanese house construction business, FRP’s sales in Japan cannot support the company’s market supply capacity in Japan.

Under such background, U-Pica will increase its supply capacity in the expected continuous growth Chinese market in order to increase its profitability.
