Teijin Limited has announced that Teijin (Thailand) Limited in the Bang Pa-in Industrial Estate of Thailand’s Ayutthaya Province, which was flooded by torrential rainfall in October 2011 and then resumed partial operation in February this year, returned to full-scale production on Oct. 31. All three Teijin Group polyester production facilities in Thailand affected by the flooding are again operating normally.
