The company plans to invest $45 million to expand production capacity.

DuPont Transportation & Advanced Polymers (T&AP), a business unit of DowDuPont Specialty Products Division, purchases a new facility in Newark, Delaware to manufacture DuPont Kalrez, a specialized engineered material used in a variety of sealing applications. The facility is reportedly twice the size of the current plant in Newark. Over the next two years, DuPont T&AP says it plans to invest approximately $45 million to increase manufacturing capacity and then transition production from the current site to the new facility. The new facility will allow manufacturing of Kalrez perfluoroelastomer parts to expand in-line with the projected business growth and to better serve customers in the semiconductor, electronics and industrial markets, according to the company.
