Toray Industries has established Toray Resins Europe GmbH (TREU), a marketing and distribution company for its resin products, in Neu-Isenburg, Germany, to help develop its resin business in Europe.

The new company will introduce CAE analysis and resin evaluation tools, implement product development and provide technical support corresponding to local needs, the company says.

Toray has also improved its Resin Technical Center located in Indiana, U.S. and built a new 1,200 m2 building. The center will introduce new facilities including an extruder and scanning electronic microscope.

Following these new developments Toray plans to improve collaboration with its customers such as automobile parts manufacturers with R&D functions in Europe and North America as well as  Japanese parts manufacturers, and accelerate the global expansion of its automobile market, which is expected to further grow in the future.
