DuPont Picks Site For Kevlar Plant
DuPont has picked its Cooper River, S.C., site to build a $500 million plant making Kevlar-brand p-aramid fiber. The plant is the centerpiece of a DuPont plan, announced last September, to expand global Kevlar capacity by 25%. It is expected to open in 2010 and employ 100 people. The Cooper River site employs about 60 people today in the production of Hytrel thermoplastic polyester.
