MONCKS CORNRS, S.C.—DuPont Co. has opened a new biopharmaceutical tubing plant in South Carolina.
Wilmington, Del.-based DuPont marked the opening of the Liveo Healthcare Solutions plant at its Cooper River site in Moncks Corners, S.C., on July 28. A ribbon-cutting ceremony was attended by state and local government officials and business leaders.
DuPont officials said in a news release that the new plant will expand capacity for biopharmaceutical tubing extrusion to meet increased demand. The site uses the same quality standards as the DuPont health care site in Hemlock, Mich., the firm's long-standing health care manufacturing site.
"The Cooper River site will bring additional production capacity online over the next two years to serve strategic customers and expand our customer base," said Eugenio Toccalino, health care and specialty lubricants global business director. "We're committed to investing in our health care business, and this biopharma processing manufacturing investment at Cooper River is a key milestone in our growth strategy."
