The carbon fiber products are suitable for applications such as renewable energy, nuclear power and aerospace.

Construction work will commence in the second half of 2023, with production expected to start at the end of 2025. Providing up to 1,000 tons of additional capacity, this investment will also generate about 50 new jobs at the plant.


"This investment demonstrates our shareholders’ recognition of the excellence of our products and their confidence in us as a company. It will also allow us to reinforce and secure our know-how in France," remarked Jean-Marc Guilhempey, Chief Executive Officer of Toray Carbon Fibers Europe.

In view of the sustained demand from these emerging sectors, and the gradual recovery of the aerospace industry, the company considers it vital to prepare for the future by investing today.
