WILMINGTON, Del. – FMC Corporation, a publicly traded agricultural sciences company, plans to invest more than $50 million over the next three years in capital improvement projects, including a reconfiguration of a greenhouse and research facility at the company's Global Research and Development headquarters in Newark, Delaware.

FMC acquired the 515-acre Stine Research Center campus as part of its acquisition of a portion of DuPont's crop protection business in 2017. The transaction was the largest in FMC history and retained more than 500 jobs in Delaware, transferred 45 employees from a nearby state and created 19 new positions.

"FMC is making a significant new investment in Delaware, and in a campus that has long been a center of world-class biotechnology and agriscience research," said Delaware Governor John Carney. "This investment in Newark will support good-paying jobs for Delawareans and their families, and the continued growth of our state's economy. It's more true than ever that Delaware has a world-class workforce, and a quality of life that is second to none. And these investments by FMC help reaffirm that our state is a great place for businesses of all sizes to put down roots, grow, and create good-paying jobs."
