SHANGHAI -- DuPont Co. has opened an automotive technical center at its r&d operation here, an arrangement similar to the company's other r&d centers in the United States, Europe and Japan.
The r&d center will focus on material development, prototyping, testing and design, said Tony Su, president of DuPont Greater China.
DuPont's automotive operation makes paint and other coatings. DuPont, of Wilmington, Del., ranks No. 35 on the Automotive News list of the top 100 global suppliers with worldwide original-equipment automotive parts sales of $4 billion in 2009.
