DuPont To Expand North Carolina Plant

Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont will invest approximately $55 million to expand its manufacturing facility in Kinston, N.C. During the next three years, the company will spend $24 million and will create 66 jobs at the plant, which will produce corn-derived DuPont™ Sorona® polymer.

In addition, DuPont has received a $200,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund, which provides financial assistance to qualified businesses through the state’s Commerce Finance Center.

“Kinston is special to the DuPont Bio-Based Materials business because it is where we discovered the recipe for making DuPont Sorona ... ,” said John Ranieri, vice president and general manager, DuPont. “I am proud and honored to say that we are now taking this proprietary technology from concept to commercial-scale reality with the expansion of our operations in Lenoir County.”& lt; /p>
