PPG Industries of the U.S. and Nan Ya Plastics Corp. of Taiwan plan to build a plant in Kunshan, China, to make fiber glass yarns primarily for electronics customers. The project is subject to Taiwan government approval. PFG Fiber Glass (Kunshan) Co. Ltd. will produce electronic yarns in a Kunshan industrial economic development zone west of Shanghai. Nan Ya, a major printed circuit board producer, is building an adjacent complex that will include weaving, laminating and circuit board production facilities. It will be PFG (Kunshan)'s principal customer. Kevin F. Sullivan, PPG vice president of fiber glass, said construction is expected to begin early next year with startup scheduled in early 2003. While the facility will have one melting furnace at startup, Sullivan said the site allows for significant future expansion. A holding company established in Hong Kong will operate the Kunshan facility.
