CZECH REPUBLIC • The manufacturer of waterless offset plate technology consolidated all development and support activities for the European label, packaging and newspaper industries in its Prostějov TTCE (Toray Textiles Central Europe) facility.

”We chose our existing TTCE-site for expansion as we were building increased production capacity because it is located in the heart of Europe, making it efficient to serve customers across the Continent, as well as in the UK and the Americas,” said Mitsunori Hayashi, general manager for sales in the graphic materials department at TTCE.

In late 2014, Toray opened a new 6,000 square meter building at its TTCE campus to accommodate its expanded plate manufacturing operations. The 140-meter-long production line produces waterless printing plates – from the aluminium coils, through washing, coating and laminating, to cutting the finished products. It is a state-of-the-art facility that exactly matches the high quality standards of the manufacturing plant in Japan for global consistency in plate quality.
