Reconstruction of the AKZO grounds
The former ‘AKZO’ grounds in Arnhem (The Netherlands), where both Teijin Aramid and AkzoNobel have been situated for years, will be transformed to a multifunctional area with work, study and living opportunities. The transformation of the area is expected to be finished by 2021. Owner ‘Pingproperties’ renewed the long-term rental agreement with Rijnijssel college in 2018, made possible as a result of Teijin moving their global headquarters to their research facility.
Teijin Aramid is a subsidiary of Teijin Group, and is a global leader in aramid. In any case where strength, sustainability, safety, heat resistance or light weight is needed, the aramid fiber Twaron, Twaron®, Teijinconex®, Technora® or ultrasterk polyethyleen (UHMW-PE) Endumax® of Teijin is utilized. Their products are used in Formula 1 vehicles, but were also used for the construction of the impressive roof of the ‘Stedelijk Museum’ in Amsterdam.
