The plans include a series of investments totalling more than $100 million to be completed over the next three to four years. More than a third of the spend is expected to be installed by the end of 2015 – the balance over the following three years.

The investment will support growth in DuPont speciality resins including: Surlyn ionomer resin, Nucrel ethylene acid copolymer resin, Elvaloy ethylene copolymer resins, Vamac ethylene acrylic elastomers, and special grades of Elvax EVA copolymers.
