DuPont increases nylon resins capacity at Ulsan, Korea

ULSAN, KOREA: DuPont has enhanced its global manufacturing network in support of strong Asia demand for its engineering resins through a 20,000 tonne 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.

“Continuing to invest in the regions with the highest market growth is a key strategy for the company and our business. 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. We are committed to a programme of investment to support the growth of our global customers and at the same time reinforce our position as the leading supplier of engineering resins,” said Richard Mayo, Global Business Director, DuPont Engineering Polymers.
