USA-based science products and services company DuPont has opened a regional Innovation Center in Bangkok, Thailand to foster the exchange of ideas, to improve efficiency and response, and to help customers and partners, government and other organizations get new solutions to market faster.

“The ASEAN population has grown to become the third largest after China and India, generating greater need for food, energy and protection. DuPont Thailand is committed to leading collaborative and inclusive innovation in response to the opportunities for economic growth arising in our country and the region. Collaboration is the driving force behind establishing this Innovation Center,” said Managing Director Dr Somchai Laohaverapanich. 

“At the Thailand Innovation Center, we can connect with a network of 100 research laboratories and application development centres across the globe to work on solutions that addresses the critical needs of customers and partners.  The real-time collaboration that is made possible at the centre, between our scientists and customers, means innovative solutions and increased speed to market for consumers,” added Innovation Center Manager Suntaree Taratikun.

DuPont opened its first two Innovation Centers in Asia Pacific in June 2011; one in Korea, servicing the electronics and automotive industries, and another in Taiwan, focusing on the electronics and communications markets.
