DuPont has officially opened its Kalrez manufacturing plant in Newark, Delaware. The facility was built to meet increasing demand in the semiconductor and industrial sectors. The new plant will feature an ISO Class 6 Cleanroom, upgraded manufacturing equipment, optimized facility layout and space to support future business growth. These new features will expand DuPont Kalrez perfluoroelastomer parts capacity. DuPont hopes the Newark facility will increase cycle times and offer expanded areas for finishing, inspection, packaging, and shipping.

We are committed to partnering with our customers on innovation and pride ourselves on driving operational excellence and delivering supply reliability and consistent superiority in quality performance. The Tralee Park Annex is a prime example of how we are delivering on these core competencies. This facility also advances our sustainability agenda as it integrates a state-of-the-art energy, IT infrastructure and building layout that minimizes energy consumption and maximizes efficiency and productivity.”
