About DuPont in New Zealand

DuPont (New Zealand) Limited was incorporated in 1979 and commenced operations in November that year. However, the history of the DuPont brand in New Zealand goes back some 65 years to a time when local trading companies marketed DuPont products to a variety of industries, predominantly agriculture and agricultural support industries.

The Company's trading emphasis now encompasses high technology including electronics and chemical business areas, while agriculture remains a stalwart among the core businesses.

The company has received world-wide recognition for its environmental work for funding the relocation and the re-population of the Takahe, a native New Zealand bird that was facing almost certain extinction.

Its Engineering Polymers business has also been widely recognised for identifying a high-profile use of DuPont Rynite® in the development for the New Zealand enterprise Fisher & Paykel of a world-beating Smart Drive electric motor technology.

DuPont in New Zealand is based in Auckland.
