Five strong organisations rebrand to form Japan’s Teijin Automotive




Five strong organisations, Continental Structural Plastics (CSP), Inapal Plásticos, Benet Automotive, CSP Victall, and Teijin Automotive Centre Europe (TACE), have come together under a single brand to form Teijin Automotive technologies. Teijin is a leader in composite materials and solutions for the worldwide mobility industry which is based in Japan.

Through this rebranding, Teijin Automotive technologies becomes a proven manufacturer of highly-engineered materials for dynamic market divisions with the ability to supply consistent materials and components to customers across North America, Europe, and Asia, a capability no other supplier can provide. Spanning several mobility related industries, including automotive, heavy truck, marine and recreational vehicle segments, the new organisation which includes Teijin’s automotive composites team in Japan, is positioned to provide advanced materials solutions through its 29 strategically located manufacturing and technical centres. Utilising all the strengths from the previously separate companies, Teijin Automotive technologies can provide unique solutions for the next generation of mobility, the company said in a media statement.

The move establishes a singular organisation with a global footprint and 5,400 employees capable of combining world-class materials expertise with cutting-edge engineering and design to create solutions that make vehicles safer and more eco-friendly. By selecting the right material for the right application, Teijin Automotive technologies creates components and systems that enable lighter, stronger, safer, and more energy efficient vehicles. The unification further strengthens the organisation’s capabilities as a vertically integrated, full-service supplier that develops materials to meet customer needs today, while anticipating needs of tomorrow.

As an organisation committed to sustainability and innovation, Teijin Automotive technologies is currently engaged in a variety of research projects aimed at making its operations and products more environmentally friendly. These include carbon footprint analyses, complete life cycle assessment of composite materials, and material recycling processes.

“With the integration of these organisations, we can supply expertise in a wide range of materials allowing us to develop solutions that address our customers’ most difficult design challenges. Now, as Teijin Automotive technologies, we are able to develop new materials, source them where and when they are needed, and provide the expertise that meets the world’s ever-changing mobility needs. Teijin has a very strong commitment to sustainability and the society of the future, so we are engaged in a number of initiatives that support this commitment. By identifying sources of CO2 emissions in our materials and processes, we will identify ways to reduce our environmental impact and establish targets for long-term improvement,” Steve Rooney, CEO of Teijin Automotive technologies and general manager, Teijin Composites Business Unit said.
