HOUSTON (ICIS)--DuPont has reopened its corporate headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, as well as five of the seven plants sites that were closed before Hurricane Sandy, the company said on Wednesday.
Two sites in northern New Jersey were impacted by power outages, said Tara Stewart, a spokeswoman with DuPont. They are scheduled to resume operations later this week.
The company had shut down seven facilities in Delaware, New Jersey, Pennsylvania and Rhode Island, stationing an emergency response team in North Carolina.
The company’s Towanda site in Pennsylvania manufactures flexible laminates, films and other products.
In New Jersey, DuPont’s Parlin facility in Sayreville makes packaging graphics products, Teflon fluoropolymer products and Tedlar polyvinyl fluoride products. Its Deepwater facility makes specialty and performance chemicals, fluorochemicals, elastomers, polyester elastomers and industrial chemicals.
