To support the continued demand for release liners in the Asia-Pacific region, Loparex has announced investments that will double manufacturing capacity at the Guangzhou, China facility by the first quarter of 2011. The new capacity will enhance Loparex’s leading global supply capability to meet the demands of both local Asia-Pacific customers as well as the company’s many global customers.

“Our customers expect high quality and performance from our products; this new capacity will enable Loparex to continue to offer the broadest portfolio of release liner products to serve demanding, growth markets, such as electronics, medical, and industrial segments,” said Andie Ho, managing director of Loparex Asia-Pacific.

Said Tapani Laakso, Loparex Asia-Pacific Sales and Marketing director, “Our customers continue to become more global, with multi-national product development and supply chain strategies. As we add capacity in the Asia Pacific region, we are also expanding the industry leading, global technology, product development and marketing capability of Loparex within the Asia-Pacific region to offer our customers unparalleled support and technical expertise.
