DuPont announced a comprehensive titanium dioxide expansion plan which will add about 350,000 metric tonnes of global capacity and strengthen the company's capability to meet the increasing demand from its customers. The expansion includes new production facilities at the company's Altamira (Mexico) site, as well as additional investments to improve the productivity at its other titanium dioxide sites around the world.

The new line at the Altamira site is scheduled for completion by year-end 2014 and will provide approximately 200,000 metric tonnes of new capacity per year. Facility upgrades underway at DuPont's five titanium dioxide manufacturing sites will continue over the next three years, yielding an additional 150,000 metric tonnes of capacity.

“This expansion and upgrades of our facilities allow us to rapidly adapt to changes in the marketplace and consistently meet the ever-changing demands of our customer base,” said DuPont Titanium Technologies (DTT) President BC Chong. “Adding capacity at our Altamira site in Mexico, as well as improving our existing uptime and production rates at all sites, is a vital part of our strategy to help our customers succeed. By increasing capacity, we will ensure a sustainable supply for customers and partners to help secure their success in the marketplace.”

“This expansion is a response to the global markets' growing demand for high-quality titanium dioxide and confirms our continuous commitment in supporting our customers' growth globally,” said Paulo Vieira, DTT leader in Latin America. “The expansion also will enhance our ability to supply high-value in use titanium dioxide and will further enhance DuPont's position as the preferred partner to the leading producers of quality coatings, plastics and paper.”

Jorge Cossio, president, DuPont Mexico, said, “DuPont Mexico, in particular our Altamira plant, is very proud and fully committed to this expansion, which will answer our customers' needs and generate important benefits to the state of Tamaulipas.”
