DuPont announced the expansion of the DuPont Automotive Center (DAC) in Nagoya and renamed it the DuPont Japan Innovation Center. The expansion and renaming reflects the substantially broader capability of the center to include other industries with remaining focus on the automotive industry.
With the broadened approach, the DuPont Japan Innovation Center will create opportunity and space to display industry specific innovations, latest technology offerings and industry trends to stimulate customer dialogues. By working with local partners and connecting them through real-time video technology with the company’s global network of 9,500 scientists, chemists and engineers working in over 150 research and development centers around the world, the center will create a rich exchange of new ideas and an inclusive atmosphere that will lead to faster innovative solutions.
The center in Nagoya has been serving customers in the automotive industry since 2005. The objective was to better serve the automotive industry and create new business through collaboration with key industry participants. In the past six years, DAC hosted more than 9,400 visitors and generated almost 370 new product innovations for automotive customers.
