 DU PONT INCREASES PRODUCTION CAPACITY
 FOR 'LYCRA' SPANDEX AT SINGAPORE PLANT
 WILMINGTON, Del., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Du Pont (NYSE: DD) has announced plans to double production capacity for "Lycra" spandex at its Singapore plant.
 Du Pont began construction of the Singapore plant in September 1990. It will be operational this year and will employ approximately 200 people. The additional capacity will come on stream next year.
 Demand for "Lycra" has grown rapidly in Asia Pacific. Du Pont's strategy is to "have sufficient capacity to meet current and anticipated demand for 'Lycra' in the region and globally," according to Salim Ibraham, Du Pont's vice president for "Lycra" worldwide. Plans are to expand capacity in Singapore to equal that of other "Lycra" plants throughout the world, he said.
 "Lycra" is Du Pont's trademark for its man-made fiber, which has distinctive elastic properties suited for a broad range of applications, including intimate apparel, swimwear, hosiery and outerwear. It provides fashionable comfort and fit in combination with natural and man-made fibers. The Singapore plant will be Du Pont's ninth "Lycra" plant and will serve the entire Asia Pacific region.
