Only weeks after the privatization of DuPont Canada was confirmed, the company has announced plans to split the Canadian operations into two companies to support the pending separation of DuPont Textiles & Interiors (DTI) from DuPont Canada’s parent company, DuPont (Wilmington, DE).
The existing company, DuPont Canada Inc. (Mississauga, ON), will become part of global DTI, and will be called DuPont Textiles & Interiors Canada Inc. This company will include the assets and resources associated with Engineering Polymers and Fluorochemicals at Maitland, ON, and all Canadian DTI business operations, located primarily in Kingston, ON, and Maitland. Also part of DTI Canada are the non-DTI manufacturing operations of DuPont Canada, including Performance Coatings at Ajax, and Packaging and Industrial Polymers at Sarnia.
The non-DTI operations will focus on manufacturing products exclusively for DuPont in Canada on a contract basis.
Concurrently, certain non-DTI assets of DuPont Canada will become part of DuPont and go into a new company to be named E.I. du Pont Canada.
E.I. du Pont Canada will include: Liqui- Box (Canada); Granirex; Brookdale; marketing and sales of DuPont products (including those produced by the Contract Manufacturing division of DTI Canada); support services and TMH Logistics (TONA).
“Our relationship with our customers, as well as our accountability to our customers, will not change,” said Doug Muzyka, DuPont Canada president and CEO.
The new corporate structure will be fully operational by October 1, 2003.
