DuPont Animal Nutrition announces manufacturing facility in Wuxi, China


 

DuPont Nutrition & Biosciences has announced on August 27 the opening of a new animal nutrition manufacturing capability in Wuxi, China.


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


"This facility will improve the flexibility of our offerings to the Chinese animal nutrition market," said Aart Mateboer, business unit director of DuPont Animal Nutrition. "We look forward to providing our key accounts a more customised offering, as well as a larger range of packaging sizes to better meet our customers' needs.  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".


"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 (Chinese) customers" said Katariina Rasinmaki, DuPont's global manufacturing and supply chain leader.


"We continue to enhance our capability to deliver solutions from our best in class product portfolio to our Asia Pacific customers," said Vik Prabhu, DuPont's regional director of health and biosciences (Asia Pacific).  "We recently expanded our capability at our Shanghai Animal Nutrition Applications & 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 flexible local response to our most valued customers".
