DuPont has begun construction of a new world-class coatings plant in the Jiading district of Shanghai. When completed next year, the plant will serve a variety of automotive and industrial markets in China.

Operations at the new plant are expected to begin in late 2007. The facility will employ approximately 250 people initially. Products will include coatings for use in automotive and a range of industrial applications. The Jiading plant will be the company's tenth finishes-related investment in China.
