allowing us to grow our offering to customers with an expanded range of consumables for controlled environments, including life sciences and electronics manufacturing sites."

The acquisition is part of the DuPont Safety & Protection strategy to expand the company's presence in consumables in the controlled environment market space.

It also complements the company's current offering, making DuPont a leading sourcefor a variety of products, including disposable garments and accessories, cleanroom wipes and disinfectants.
