Zoltek facility to house Toray operation

Zoltek Companies, headquartered in St. Louis, MO, a leader in the production of low cost industrial grade carbon fibre, will house the newest Toray operation on the Zoltek property in Nyergesújfalu, Hungary. Toray Industries, parent company to Zoltek, will be establishing a resin compound base in Europe for the first time.

Toray has chosen the Zoltek property as the ideal space to build its new PPS resin compound production facility due to its central location within Europe. While this, Toray production facility will operate alongside Zoltek and will utilise already established infrastructure, operating as a division of Toray.

“We are pleased to support the Toray resin business in Europe and we look forward to the positive effect this will have on the automotive industry,” said Remarked Zoltek President and CEO, Yoshihiro Takeuchi.

Meanwhile, Zoltek will continue to produce the company’s carbon and oxidized fibre products, as normal, at the Hungarian facility. The location has been central to the business of Zoltek since the acquisition of the plant in the mid-1990s. Currently, the plant produces the Zoltek PX35 and Zoltek OX fibre lines in a variety of product forms including continuous tow, fabrics, and pultruded products.
