DSM announced that it will upgrade the plant of DSM Jiangshan Pharmaceutical (Jiangsu) Co., Ltd, and will suspend vitamin C production for 4 months in the second half of 2018
The Royal DSM N.V. announced that it will continue increasing the investment in production facilities of Jiangshan Vitamin C plant to enhance its operating capabilities, and will stop production for a long time in the second half of 2018 for overall facility upgrades. This action will again reflect DSM's long-term commitment to higher quality, safety, sustainability, and productivity.
The suspension will start in June and will last for 4 months.
Upgrade for production facilities not only follows DSM's sustainable development strategy, but also actively responds to the "Green China, Beautiful China" policy of Chinese government. Moreover, it will help reduce greenhouse gas emissions and support the sustainable development of Jiangsu Province.
During the suspension, DSM will ensure the stable supply of vitamin C for all contracted customers.
