DU PONT RESTRUCTURES TEXTILE ORGANIZATION

 DU PONT RESTRUCTURES TEXTILE ORGANIZATION
 WILMINGTON, Del., Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Du Pont (NYSE: DD) has


announced a major restructuring of its textile organization, reflecting the increasing size, scope and market focus of the company's global textile business.
 Du Pont recently agreed to purchase ICI's (NYSE: ICI) European nylon fiber business, greatly expanding its presence in that market. The agreement has been approved by the European Commission and is pending clearance by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission.
 In anticipation of final approval, effective Nov. 1, Paul G. Gillease becomes responsible for successfully integrating the ICI and Du Pont nylon fiber businesses. He will also retain his current responsibilities as vice president and general manager of Du Pont's worldwide nylon textile business.
 "Our goal is to capitalize on the many strengths of the integrated ICI-Du Pont organization as quickly as possible once the agreement is approved," said Jerry Blumberg, senior vice president, Du Pont Fibers. "That means welcoming the new employees to the global Fibers team, clarifying their roles and eliminating their uncertainties, and hearing their ideas on how we can bring greater value to our customers. Paul's depth of experience in the textile industry, his understanding of our nylon textile business, and his commitment to our corporate values make him uniquely qualified to help guide this transition."
 Gillease, who joined Du Pont in 1961, has managed the company's textile organization since 1983, first as director and then as vice president and general manager. In his new assignment, he will eventually relocate to Europe and maintain an office in Wilmington.
 In other management changes, effective Nov. 1, Richard J. Anguillo is promoted to vice president and general manager of DuPont's worldwide "Dacron" business. He is currently general director, Du Pont "Dacron."
 Salim M. Ibrahim continues as vice president and general manager of Du Pont's Worldwide "Lycra" business, which he has managed since March 1987.
 Gillease, Anguillo and Ibrahim will report directly to Blumberg, senior vice president, Du Pont Fibers, and will serve on the Fibers worldwide leadership team.
 Also effective Nov. 1, Robert W. Pruyn becomes general director of U.S. marketing for Du Pont's textile businesses, reporting to Blumberg.
 "We will continue to build our multi-fiber focus, which is so critical to our future success," Blumberg said. "Bob Pruyn will play a key role in the successful implementation of this strategy."
