The plant will have a high volume manufacturing line to build optically bonded glass for liquid crystal displays (LCDs), for contrast enhanced and ruggedized high-performance consumer tablet and laptop PCs.
"China provides an ideal environment for the development and manufacture of the consumer display products our customers and the electronics industry require," said Peter Compo, global business director and general manager of DuPont Displays, in a statement during the opening of the plant.
"This new facility in Shenzhen will allow us to supply high-volume optically bonded glass displays at competitive prices. It also allows us to be close to our manufacturing partners, and to simplify the supply chain."
"We have been experiencing a healthy and efficient double-digit growth in our business in China," said Tom Powell, president of DuPont Greater China.
DuPont started its business in China in the mid-1980s, called DuPont China, which has 33 wholly-owned and joint ventured facilities in the country. DuPont China has total investments exceeding $600 million and employs 5,000.
