September 10/2012

Polyplastics believes that the acquisition will help strengthen the technical advantage of its LCP business through the research and development process to the production process, i.e., from raw material monomers to finished resin products, and will enable a stable supply of higher-quality products to customers.

Regarding the business operation of LCPG, the present LCPG management team will carry on the business with existing valued customers as before. Furthermore, LCPG will maintain the responsibility for supply of p-HBA and related products with required investments in quality improvement and expansion of productivity.
