DuPont, the American chemical manufacturer, is looking to further strengthen Mexico’s growing business and investment sectors. By leveraging the power of their global network, DuPont plans to establish a Mexico based “innovation center” that allow rapidly expanding countries to ‘collaborate with their customers, partners, governments and academia to meet Mexico’s growing needs in areas of food, protection and energy.’
“We are looking forward to helping our customers grow their business right here in Mexico,” said Jorge Cossío, president, DuPont México. “These centers are a new way of looking at innovation and collaboration to help our customers find solutions to their unmet needs so that new products can be developed and go to market faster.”
DuPont has more than 9,500 scientists and engineers located in 150 technical centers around the world, so expanding this operation into Mexico was an easy choice.
“The DuPont Mexico Innovation Center  will provide a critical missing link in our ability to collaborate with direct and indirect customers and other innovators in Mexico,” said Eduardo Wanick, president, DuPont Latin America. “It will enhance our ability to put science to work to address the specific needs of society in Mexico and Central America.”
The Innovation Center in Mexico is part of the company’s global plan to create a worldwide network of innovation centers to develop new solutions together with their partners to address global needs. In addition to Mexico, the company has Innovation Centers in Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, India and Japan.
