The Japanese textile manufacturer Toray reveals a new case of data falsification

The Japanese textile manufacturer Toray Industries revealed today that its subsidiary of rubber fabrics used in the motor industry forged eight years technical specifications of three types of products.

Tokyo, Nov 28 (EFE) .- The Japanese textile manufacturer Toray Industries revealed today that its subsidiary of rubber fabrics used in the motor industry forged the specifications for eight years techniques of three types of products.

The people in charge of the quality control department of Toray Hybrid Cord (THC) manipulated the data of tire fabrics, hoses automotive and paper tissue to match those requested by its customers between April 2008 and July 2016, explained the president of the subsidiary, Nobuhiro Suzuki.

Toray joins a growing list of Japanese companies that have admitted the falsification of technical product data, which is the metallurgical Kobe Steel and three subsidiaries from the also manufacturer of materials Mitsubishi Materials.

Suzuki revealed at a press conference in which also appeared and apologized the president of the matrix, Akihiro Nikkaku, that more than 400 tons of these materials were sent in the period to 13 companies, which have not reported any security problem related to the falseo.

The manager said that the pressure to comply with the deadlines was possibly one of the reasons that motivated this practice.

"There has been no case of counterfeiting since July 2016, as we have taken measures, "said Nikkaku, who assured that Toray" takes this case very seriously "and that they will continue working so that it does not happen again.

The company also acknowledged that it has opened an external investigation after detecting other suspicious cases in other branches of the conglomerate and expects to have the results before the end of the year.

Nikkaku pointed out that the company he had no intention of revealing the case because he did not inflict law or detect risks for security, but decided to publicly address the problem because of fears that the release of the recent irregularities in the Japanese private sector will trigger inaccurate or false rumors.

Toray's revelation fell like a jug of cold water among its investors in the Tokyo Stock Exchange, where the company shares closed down 5.3% after falling to 8.5%.
