(packwebasia) -- Indorama Ventures
Public Company Limited (IVL) has reopened its PET plants in Thailand following a
shutdown due to the floods from end-September 2011.
The plants in Lopburi – Indorama Polymers Public Company Limited and Asia Pet
(Thailand) Limited – have started partial resumption of operations, and
according to IVL, will ramp up production with a target of being fully
operational in May 2012.
IVL’s packaging division Petform (Thailand) Limited – which has an annual
production capacity of 178,000 tonnes of bottle-grade PET - is expected to come
online shortly after, while the Indorama Holdings Limited wool facility is
expected to return to service later this year.
