RESTRUCTURING OF EUROPEAN PRODUCTION IN CIBA-GEIGY'S TEXTILE DYES DIVISION

 RESTRUCTURING OF EUROPEAN PRODUCTION IN CIBA-GEIGY'S
 TEXTILE DYES DIVISION
 BASEL, Switzerland, May 20 /PRNewswire/ -- As part of the strategic reorganization of its business, over the next two years CIBA-GEIGY Limited's Textile Dyes division will restructure individual segments and tighten up production in Europe. Dyestuffs operations in the United States will not be affected.
 The changes are intended to gain efficiencies and increase flexibility and productivity. This will be achieved by concentrating product groups on fewer production sites and making better use of capacity.
 Dyestuffs production processes will be moved and individual textile dyestuff production facilities will be closed in Schweizerhalle and Basel, Switzerland; Grenzach, Germany; and Manchester, U.K.
 The restructuring will reduce employment in Textile Dyes production by approximately 600-700 positions. It should be possible, however, to find new jobs from normal personnel movements for the approximately 300 parent company employees affected. The same applies to the 100 concerned in the Grenzach Works. At the Manchester Works it will be necessary to work out individual solutions over the next two years for those employees who can in the mid-term no longer continue to be employed. The number affected depends very much on how the economic situation develops.
 Implementation of these measures will begin in the second half of this year and be phased in over two years. The restructuring will ensure optimal use of the highly developed plant at the various sites and enable the Textile Dyes division to expand its leading position in the world.
 Ciba-Geigy Limited of Basel, Switzerland, is a leading developer and manufacturer of healthcare, agricultural and industrial products. The company is committed to its integrated vision of social, economic and environmental responsibilities. Ciba-Geigy Corporation, headquartered in Ardsley, N.Y., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Ciba-Geigy Limited of Basel.
