The new plant operation will provide customised solutions according to DuPont’s global quality standards and advanced technology for the local animal production industry.

Aart Mateboer, business unit director, animal nutrition, said, “This facility will improve the flexibility of our offerings to the Chinese animal nutrition market.

“We look forward to providing our key accounts with a more customised offering, as well as a larger range of packaging sizes to meet our customers’ needs better. It provides us enhanced capabilities to launch many new products out of our global R&D pipeline to support the evolving needs of our customers in China.”

Katariina Rasinmaki, global manufacturing and supply chain leader, stated, “We are pleased to add our Animal Nutrition products to the portfolio we support at our Wuxi facility, and offer world-class quality with very local customisation to our China customers.”

“We recently expanded our capability at our Shanghai Animal Nutrition Applications and Technical Service Laboratory, which is an excellent complement to this new operation. Due to African Swine Fever and COVID-19, our customers have adapted quickly to changing conditions and this facility is designed to provide a flexible local response to our most valued customers.”
