DuPont opens new facility in China

21-05-2008 | |

DuPont Animal Health Solutinos has expanded its biosecurity offering in Asia with a new facility in Shenzhen, China.

The plant produces virucidal disinfectant Virkon® S. The company plans to manufacture other animal health product offerings at the site in the future.

DuPont Animal Health Solutions products are used in the livestock industry for customised biosecurity programmes that help prevent pathogens from establishing themselves and also help prevent the spread of infection on the farm.

Growth in China
According to the company, its sales are growing at more than 50% annually in China alone.

With local facilities in place, DuPont hopes to respond more quickly and effectively to local customer needs, providing faster service to effectively combat regional disease outbreaks.

The modern facility at Shenzhen offers powder and liquid product lines, as well as flexible packaging solutions, including a broad spectrum of product packaging for smaller farmers in China. The local facility will also result in a shorter lead time for local and regional customers, providing better emergency disease control in the region.
