DuPont: Expansion in Korea
DuPont today has enhanced its global manufacturing network in support of strong Asia demand for its engineering resins through a 20,000-tons-per-year expansion at its Ulsan, Korea, compounding facility for nylon resins.
The capacity expansion is in response to rapid growth in demand for DuPont Zytel nylon resins in the region, particularly for automotive applications, and complements other recent engineering polymers investments in Singapore for DuPont’s high-performance polyamides.
“Continuing to invest in the regions with the highest market growth is a key strategy for the company and our business,” says Richard Mayo, global business director DuPont Engineering Polymers. “This new capacity will enable us to respond quickly to local customer needs and ensure the supply of high-quality products required to meet the rapidly increasing demand in Asia."
