Du Pont makes new moves into Russia.

Du Pont, Wilmington, DE, and its energy subsidiary, Conoco, recently announced that a new company has been registered in the Russian Federation. The company, Du Pont Russia, will operate out of newly renovated offices at Yuzhinsky Pereulok in Moscow and is authorized to purchase, sell, manufacture, import and export products.

The company's principal businesses with the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS, the former Soviet Union) include crop production products, elastomers, industrial films, textile and industrial fibers, adhesives and finishes. While no nonwovens are being made or sold in Russia as yet, the marketing possibilities are being evaluated with particular attention being paid to engineered fibers. The only fiber currently sold in the CIS from Du Pont is "Lycra" spandex, which is used in apparel.
