ERJ staff report (DS)
Arnhem Netherlands -- From the last quarter of 2010, all aramid spinning lines at Teijin Aramid's Emmen, The Netherlands plant will be operational. A large number of spinning lines were shut down in 2009 in response to declining market demand. Demand for aramid now appears to be recovering faster than had been predicted in the first quarter of this year. Teijin Aramid is responding to this recovery by starting all production lines once more. With the restart of the last spinning line, all spinning lines will be operational and production will be at full capacity.
With the start up of the spinning line some 30 additional employees will be hired. The next few months will focus primarily on recruiting and training mechanical operators who will make it possible to start up the line. In an earlier phase, some 10 processing operators had been appointed who, along with the mechanical operators, will make it possible to build up to full capacity operations once more.
