Toray Plastics I and II


A subsidiary of Toray Industries, Inc., headquartered in Tokyo, Toray Plastics (America), Inc. is the global leader in the fabrication of high-performance films, synthetic fibers and textiles, carbon fibers, plastics, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals.

Phase I of Shockey’s work for Toray included design and expansion of an existing manufacturing facility, along with associated survey and subsurface work.

Phase II was comprised of design, construction, and integration of a new manufacturing building into the existing facility in Front Royal, VA, allowing the owner to handle the addition of a new foaming line and supporting irradiation line. The new product lines necessitated a warehouse, air remediation scrubber, and molten salt recovery system. All items were integrated into the current factory without unnecessary downtime or impact to existing operations.

The Toraypef® Olefin Foams Division in Front Royal represents the only U.S. manufacturer of precision-performance polyester, polypropylene, metallized, and bio-based films. It produces film for flexible and rigid packaging, lidding, industrial, optical, graphic, and electronic applications. The Toraypef Division is a leading supplier to the automotive and flooring industries.

Toray Industries, Inc. operates 254 facilities in 26 countries and regions.
