Altamira, Mexico
Located in the southern part of Tamaulipas, Mexico, the Altamira site has produced TiO2 since 1960. In 1974, new technology provided greater application diversity for coatings customers. In 1986, DuPont increased its role from commercial partner to owner of the site. The following year, the site completed a global quality project, expanding to serve Coatings markets in Latin America, South America, Europe, and Asia. The Plant also now provides grades for the paper and laminates markets.
