Dupont to Purchase Rockland Plant in Agreement

Mar 31, 2017

A carrageenan manufacturing plant in Rockland would be purchased by Dupont under an agreement with current owner FMC.

In order to satisfy European regulators, as Dupont seeks to merge with Dow, Dupont plans to divest a portion of it's crop protection business and acquire FMC's health and nutrition business, which includes the plant in Rockland.

In an emailed statement, an FMC spokesman says that, for now, it's "business as usual." Dwayne Roark says FMC doesn't have any specifics about the future of any of its sites at this time.
