Japan-based Teijin Limited Expands with Miamisburg, Ohio Subsidiary

02/27/2019
Japan-based Teijin Limited agreed to acquire Renegade Materials Corporation, a leading North American supplier of highly heat-resistant thermoset prepreg for the aerospace industry, in Miamisburg, Ohio.

Renegade will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Teijin. The shares of Renegade will be purchased by Teijin Holdings USA Inc., the Teijin Group's holding company in the United States. According to company officials, the acquisition is anticipated to be completed this spring after customary closing conditions have been satisfied including receipt of regulatory approvals.

Teijin officials said the company will benefit from Renegade’s well-established proprietary technologies and solution capabilities in heat-resistant thermoset prepregs to expand its business in aerospace field including next-generation aircrafts’ engine parts.

In addition, Renegade’s products will reach wider markets thanks to Teijin’s expertise in carbon fibers and intermediate materials as well as its large product lineup and global sales network. Global marketing initiatives will be supported by Teijin’s carbon fiber business, including Teijin Carbon Fibers, Inc., which plans to launch a new carbon fiber production facility in South Carolina by the end of 2020.

“Demands for highly heat-resistant thermoset prepregs are increasing in the global aerospace industry,” said Shukei Inui, General Manager of Teijin’s Carbon Fibers Business Unit. “Renegade offers well-established technologies and sales channels in this field, so we expect this acquisition to help us expand our related applications development and global business.”
