Cast sheet expansion at Darwen, UK site

This exciting expansion plan was sanctioned by parent company Mitsubishi Rayon Co., Ltd (MRC) following confirmation that LI’s Regional Grant Fund application has been recommended for approval by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills. The project will commence in 2012 and enable us to have new capacity available in line with long-term market demand growth. The investment shows LI’s commitment to the continued growth of the acrylics industry and is great news for the local community where it will generate a substantial number of new jobs.
