DuPont investing USD220 million at specialty films plant in Ohio

March 12/2019

MOSCOW (MRC) -- Chemical maker DuPont will spend USD220 million to build new production assets at its specialty films plant in Circleville, Ohio, as per Canplastics.

In a statement, Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont said that the new assets will expand production of its Kapton-brand polyimide film and Pyralux-brand flexible circuit materials to meet what it calls "growing market demand in automotive, consumer electronics, telecom, and defense."

DuPont expects the new assets to be operational by 2021.

"This investment is a reflection of our strong commitment to our customers around the world," said Jim Fahey, president of DuPonts electronics and imaging division. "Our new production assets will position us well to support the growing need across many sectors for our advanced high-reliability materials for innovations in areas such as 5G, automotive, flexible displays and artificial intelligence."

DuPont has been making Kapton polyimide films for over 50 years.

DuPonts electronics and imaging business is part of the new specialty products division of DowDuPont, and was created by the 2017 merger of Dow and DuPont, and is a combination of Dows electronic materials and DuPonts electronics and communications businesses.
