DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers will hike production capacity of its ethylene copolymers plant at its Texas production facilities to meet growing market demand.

The DuPont division supplies high-performance materials to the packaging, automotive, industrial and consumer industries.

DuPont said it plans to invest more than $100 million over the next 3 to 4 years, with more than one-third of the investment, expected to be installed by the end of 2015.

“The balance of the investment is expected to be completed over the following 3 years”, DuPont added.

This investment is expected to support growing demand for DuPont speciality resins like ionomer resins, ethylene acid copolymer resins, ethylene copolymer resins, ethylene acrylic elastomers and EVA copolymers.

“Market demand for these products is growing. Our differentiated and high-value products are being used in a diverse range of growth markets”, said William Harvey, President, DuPont Packaging & Industrial Polymers.

“Our customers count on DuPont strengths in application development and new product development. We are pleased to add new capacity of our high-performance polymers to support growth for our customers”, he informed. (AR)
