Gov. John Carney issued a statement May 9 on DuPont’s announcement of the company’s $45 million purchase and expansion of a facility in Newark to manufacture the specialized engineered material Kalrez.

“DuPont’s announcement on Wednesday reaffirms that Delaware remains a great place for any company to put down roots, grow and create jobs. Delaware has a talented and dedicated workforce, an ideal location and quality of life that’s second to none. We stand ready to support any business, large or small, that is seeking a great location to grow and thrive,” said Carney.
