DuPont, Wilmington, DE, plans to invest $25 million to expand its operations in Chesterfield County, VA, creating 50 new jobs. The plant manufactures DuPont Tyvek nonwovens.
"Chesterfield County was chosen as the site for this expansion based upon strong economic factors and a great deal of confidence that we could continue to be successful working with the people and government leaders in this community," said Gregg Funari, operations business leader—DuPont Nonwovens.
The Virginia Economic Development Partnership worked with Chesterfield County to secure the project for Virginia. The company is eligible to receive state benefits from the Virginia Enterprise Zone Program, administered by the Virginia Department of Housing and Community Development, because it is locating in a Virginia Enterprise Zone. The Virginia Department of Business Assistance will also support the project with training assistance through its Workforce Services Jobs Investment Program.
