Strategic Alliance with Huvis
Huvis polyester products will be marketed globally by DTI under the DuPontTM Lycra®, Coolmax®, Thermolite® and Tactel® brands depending on the end use benefits they bring.
In February 2002 DuPont announced its intention to divest the DTI business unit so that it could evolve as a specialist textile enterprise.
Huvis is the largest polyester producer in Korea and one of the fastest-growing enterprises of its kind in the world, having expanded its operations to Brazil, China and Germany. Heavy investment in specialty fibers has made it a world leader in polyester technology.
A specialist in the manufacture of polyester products, and an industry leader in the Korean market
Huvis was established in November 2000, by merging Samyang and SK Chemicals Polyester business divisions, which had been respectively leading Korea's polyester industry for the past the 30 years.
