American materials firm DuPont announced Thursday that its DuPont Interconnect Solutions business wrapped up a $250 million project to add a new production line at its Circleville, OH manufacturing site. The investment will boost the facility’s capacity for Kapton brand polyimide film and Pyralux brand flexible circuit materials.
“This is a really important milestone for DuPont and the Electronics & Industrial business,” Avi Avula, vice president and general manager, DuPont Interconnect Solutions, said in a company release. “With this expansion, we can elevate our service levels to our customers to help them grow. This new plant is an indication of our renewed commitment to our customers’ growth agenda and enables us to meet their aggressive demand for new products with higher reliability and supply assurance.”
Products made on the line are used in the automotive, consumer electronics, telecom, specialized industrial, and defense industries. DuPont’s new asset uses proprietary processing capabilities to make polyimide films.
