A special Technology Alliance Development Department at Teijin Limited, Tokyo, Japan, will develop technology alliances and acquisitions to strengthen its downstream business management vision, the company announced in April. “We are pursuing technology alliances particularly in the fields of environment, energy and electronics, where new demands are emerging, and in health care, where we are applying our materials technologies,” said Kazuo Imose, Teijin Group corporate officer and general manager of the New Business Development Group. One example of downstream technology alliances is acquisition of proprietary film-coating technologies that Teijin used to develop Lielsort innovative separators to improve performance of lithium-ion secondary batteries.
