Indorama Polyester Industries Public Company Limited – Nakhon Pathom, Thailand
Acquired in 2009
Indorama Polyester Industries’ site in Nakhon Pathom was acquired by Indorama Ventures in 1998 from Siam Polyester and renamed as Indopoly (Thailand) Limited. Later in 2009 it was merged with Indorama Polyester Industries Public Company Limited.
From 2013 onwards, with a strong focus on sustainability, investments were made at this site for post-consumer waste recycling operations and today, it is the only IVL site that operates both virgin and recycled polyester.
The site has production facilities for polyester resin, virgin polyester staple fiber, recycled polyester staple fiber, post-consumer recycled PET flakes and recycled PET resins. The site also has a batch polymerization facility to produce specialty polyester resins.
Indorama Polyester Industries Nakhon Pathom received the prestigious “Green Industry Level 5 Award (Green Network)” in 2020 from the Government of Thailand, showcasing its commitment to sustainability. An upcoming solar power project will be commissioned by end of 2021. The site provides direct employment to approximately 600 people.
