New York, NY | Posted on December 5th, 2007

"We have delivered strong revenue and earnings growth by introducing innovative new products and end-use applications, while driving cost productivity," Gulyas said. "Our product innovations have supported price gains and our cost focus has been especially important in light of the significant increase in raw material costs over the past three years. We also have increased our global presence with strong growth in emerging markets.

"We see exciting new growth opportunities that we will pursue by leveraging DuPont polymer, nanotechnology and biotechnology science in photovoltaics, advanced metals replacement and renewable polymers. At the same time, we will continue to deliver valuable, high-performance polymer materials and solutions to our customers at attractive returns on capital," Gulyas said.
