1987 Meyrin, Switzerland
Meyrin, Switzerland, is the site of the DuPont European Technical Center (ETC), the company's main research, product development and customer support center on the continent. The ETC was built in 1987 to serve DuPont's rapidly growing European markets.
Its Meyrin location places it near Geneva, headquarters of DuPont Europe, formerly DuPont de Nemours International SA. DuPont ETC engineers and technicians provide consultation to manufacturers in the automotive, appliance, electronics, filtration, sporting goods and consumer products industries. In 2001 DuPont completed a major expansion of the ETC, including laboratories for DuPont Advanced Fiber Systems and new blow-molding processing facilities for DuPont Engineering Polymers.
