DuPont Marks 10-Year Anniversary of Electronic Materials Facility in China


Plans to Double Capacity Within Next Two Years

DONGGUAN, China, November 20, 2006 - DuPont recently marked its 10th year of successful operations at the Electronic Materials DuPont Dongguan Ltd. (EMDD) facility in Dongguan, China. DuPont was the first multinational company to establish a production facility for thick film microcircuit materials in China. Since its startup in 1996, EMDD has been serving the rapidly growing China domestic electronics market for products that support such industries as telecommunications, automotive electronics, passive components, and photovoltaics. DuPont hosted a special event to mark the occasion with key customers and employees.

“The success of the Electronic Materials DuPont Dongguan facility underlines a broader DuPont commitment to grow its presence in China through putting science to work,” said Douglas Muzyka , president of DuPont Greater China. “This is part of the company’s plan to double its China investment by 2010.”

“We are delighted to celebrate this anniversary with our customers and employees, who together have made the EMDD site a world-class thick film production facility with a passion for safety and quality,” said Walt Cheng, global business director, DuPont Microcircuit Materials .

The DuPont EMDD facility achieved a new safety milestone last month when it surpassed 3,300 days as an injury-free workplace.

Since the late 1990s, DuPont has expanded the EMDD facility’s output by 300 percent, and plans to nearly double production capacity again within the next two years, as exports increase to MCM customers globally. The local technical service facility at EMDD also is growing to better support the increasing local customer demands, particularly from the photovoltaic and passive components industries.

“We believe the EMDD site is well-positioned to continue to expand as the market for thick film products grows in the coming years. By setting a high standard for customer service, quality and responsiveness, we will continue to meet customers’ expectations well into the future,” Cheng said.

Products from the DuPont Electronic Technologies business, such as photovoltaic materials, are examples of DuPont’s recently announced marketplace sustainability commitments, to expand its business offerings to address environment, energy, safety and climate challenges in the global marketplace. As part of its 2015 Sustainability Goals, DuPont will double its investment in R&D programs with direct, quantifiable environmental benefits for its customers and consumers along its value chain.
