WITCO TO TRADE ON FRANKFURT STOCK EXCHANGE

 FRANKFURT, Germany, Oct. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- The board of directors of Witco Corporation (NYSE: WIT) today approved the company's listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange. The announcement was made at Witco's European headquarters in Frankfurt at the conclusion of the first meeting of the company's board of directors outside of North America. Deutschebank AG will sponsor Witco's listing on the Frankfurt Exchange.
 William R. Toller, chairman of the board and chief executive officer, said, "With the successful integration of the businesses and plants we acquired from Schering AG in Germany, Italy, France, Spain, and England last year, Witco is a major presence in the European market. Listing on the Frankfurt exchange underscores a commitment to our European customers and the growth of our business in Europe. This is an important step in our overall global expansion strategy."
 In November 1992, Witco acquired the National Substances and Industrial Chemicals Divisions of Schering AG, significantly expanding its presence in international markets and more than doubling its revenues from sales outside the United States.
 Witco Corporation is a worldwide manufacturer of specialty chemical and petroleum products and engineered materials with 1993 annual sales expected to exceed $2.3 billion. It operates 65 manufacturing plants in 12 countries and has marketing and sales offices which span the globe.
