A global leader in engineering services and a member of the Katoen Natie Group of Companies, J-Tec designs, supplies, builds and maintains high quality processing systems for high quality powder, pellets and liquids for leading global brands in the chemical and food industries. J-Tec has been an engineering powerhouse enhancing performance of businesses in Thailand by implementing lean project management, developing its own cutting-edge systems and applying its extensive process knowledge to establishing plant line set-ups and operations.

J-Tec delivers complete turnkey and greenfield plants, conducts comprehensive studies, and offers single process lines, with a focus on niche markets such as Infant Nutrition, Snacks & Baked Food, Food Ingredients, PVC Processing and Plastic Compounding.

“At J-Tec, our ethos extends beyond providing solutions.

This is where J-Tec excels. From our beginnings as a small commercial office, we harness our global engineering expertise to devise solutions that rise to every challenge, ensuring optimal efficiency and output to offer a complete solution from designing and engineering, to construction, commissioning and maintenance of each project.

We are not just another link in the chain; our goal is to be the trusted ally that ensures your business’s success at every turn,” said Jordy Vanden Eynde, Sales Director ASEAN, J-Tec Material Handling Co.,Ltd

Demonstrating J-Tec’s expertise in Thailand, its collaboration with Covestro at the Map Ta Phut site underscores the vital role the chemical industry plays in manufacturing materials that drive innovation and enhance quality of life. By addressing the risks associated with challenging production processes which often involve the handling and processing of hazardous substances, J-Tec showcased its commitment to creating safe workplace environments and minimizing potential environment impacts.

To emphasize J-Tec Material Handling’s commitment to excellence, its collaboration with Total Energies Corbion PLA in Rayong enables the company to produce 75,000 tons per year of a 100% bio-based and biodegradable polymer made from plant materials. J-Tec conducted full-scale trials in its own test facility before implementing the solution on-site, and the project’s full-scope included providing storage, pneumatic conveying, homogenisation, and packaging and a recycling system. J-Tec’s end-to-end project management eliminated intermediaries, and this resulted in efficient decision-making and budget savings. Being supplier-independent, J-Tec introduced an innovative pneumatic conveying system for TotalEnergies Corbion PLA.
