Rhodia Polyamide Co. Ltd http://www.rhodia-asiapacific.com/koreapolyamide.htm
Rhodia Polyamide was established in Korea in January 1999 when Rhodia acquired the engineering plastics business of the Hyosung Group.
The Chemical Daily, January 27, 1999
Rhodia recently bought out the nylon resin operations of Korea-based Hyosung.
This company is one of the main Korean players in polyamide plastics. The company has a production base near the capital, Seoul. This business represents sales of 37 million euros (about 5 billion yen). Rhodia’s objective is to grow this business for automotive application in Asia. The French company generates annual sales of 340 million euros with polyamide plastics for the automotive, electrical and consumer goods markets. It has eight production bases in the world, and seven application laboratories, with a particularly strong presence in Europe and South America. Rhodia, already present in this activity in China and Taiwan, is fortifying its position in the nylon chain in Asia, where the demand is anticipated to grow.
Today, it is a leading supplier in Korea, providing solutions to a wide spectrum of applications.
Under its trade name Technyl ®, several
grades such as Technyl ® PA6, PA 66 and PA 66/6 are offered to the
Korean market for three specific fields of application:
automotive, electric and electronics, consumer and industrial
In addition, Rhodia Polyamide launched TechnylStar®, a new nylon that is revolutionizing the market because of its outstanding combination of physical and rheological properties.
Our three plants in Korea, Taiwan and China operate under a single ISO 9000 certification.
Rhodia Polymide Korea is the regional head office for Asia and has an R&D center for new product development, and a design and finished parts testing center.
