A press article from Charleston indicates that DuPont is closing its most recent Kevlar production plant:  Read the press release here.

 

AKC Note: Very disappointing and surprising news from DuPont that they are closing the Kevlar plant just outside Charleston. We can understand that military spend has been down, but with the new administration seeming to be committed to increasing military spending we would have thought that prospects were improved, but obviously not enough to secure the future of the plant and its $400 million plus investment.
