DuPont celebrated the opening of its new DuPont™ Liveo™ Healthcare Solutions manufacturing facility located at the Cooper River Site in South Carolina with a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by state and local government officials and business leaders. The new facility will expand capacity for biopharmaceutical tubing extrusion to meet increased demand from Liveo customers. The site, located near Moncks Corner, South Carolina, operates using the same quality standards as the DuPont Healthcare Industries Materials Site (HIMS) in Hemlock, Michigan, DuPont’s long-standing healthcare manufacturing site. Operators at the new South Carolina facility were certified at HIMS.
The ribbon-cutting event included remarks from South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, Berkeley County Supervisor Johnny Cribb, DuPont Electronics & Industrial Vice President and General Manager Sam Ponzo, DuPont Healthcare & Specialty Lubricants Global Business Director Eugenio Toccalin, and Bill Alexander, DuPont Cooper River site unit leader. Attendees also toured the site. In addition to the Cooper River expansion, in the second half of 2022, the company expects to add biopharma silicone tubing capacity in China to serve the fast-growing customers in that region.
