The China Refinish Manufacturing Facility (CRMF) project team recently achieved one million hours of safe construction on the new DuPont Performance Coatings (DPC) facility in Shanghai, China.
The project has no recordable injuries to date, remains on schedule, and is under budget versus the authorized investment amount. About 550 construction workers and nine construction contractors attended a celebration to mark the accomplishments.
The team continues to find ways to achieve safety excellence while meeting and exceeding project cost, quality and schedule requirements, according to DPC. The project construction is more than 60% complete and remains on schedule toward a late 2007 or early 2008 commissioning.
The new site will provide the DPC Automotive Coatings business a manufacturing presence in the Asia Pacific region.
