"Coupled with the startup of our facility in India last year, we believe the animal health industry in the Asia Pacific region is one of the fastest growing markets in the world. With local facilities in place, DuPont can respond more quickly and effectively to local customer needs, providing faster service to effectively combat regional disease outbreaks."
The state-of-the-art facility at Shenzhen offers powder and liquid
