Toray Plastics (America), Inc. [TPA]
The New Product Development (NPD) Group of Toray Plastics (America), Inc. (TPA) was established in 2000 to develop the polyester film Lumirror™ into an industrial material and develop high-value-added products using the polypropylene film TORAYFAN™ in response to market trends. The group is helping to expand TPA's business and strengthen its intellectual property rights. Today, TPA continues to develop products with even greater added value as well as new products aimed at expanding the film converting business. Efforts are being made to further speed up development by making active use of an Innovation Center established as a development base for polypropylene foam TORAYPEF™ and TORASOFT™.
