Toray expands air filter business in India

November 02, 2023 - Japan

Toray Industries has announced that a new facility at subsidiary Toray Industries (India) Private Limited began producing air filters earlier this month. These offerings for air purifiers and automotive and building air conditioners and air conditioners minimise pressure losses while delivering high dust collection efficiency.

This is the first facility in India to integrate the production of everything from nonwoven fabrics for high-performance filter media through filter assembly. It has joined Toray Fibers (Nantong) in China, which makes nonwoven fabrics for air filters, in supplying the global market.

Worsening air pollution has heightened awareness in India of the need to deploy environmental measures. Toray looks to support rising demand for high-performance, high-quality air filters.

In keeping with its commitment to local production for local consumption, Toray will set up a manufacturing, technology development, and sales structure in India to swiftly identify needs in that market and reflect them in developing new offerings, thus quickly catering to the increasingly sophisticated performance demand of its customers, the company said in a press release.

Attaining sustainable growth is one of the basic strategies of project AP-G 2025, Toray’s medium-term management programme. In driving to expand its business, the company has accordingly positioned air filters as products that enhance safely and help shrink environmental footprints. Toray will help further reduce environmental impacts through its new air filter facility in India.
