Bayer Fibers Group Separates, Takes Dorlastan® Name

The Fibers Group of Bayer Polymers LLC has become a separate legal entity from its parent company. However, the new company, Dorlastan® Fibers LLC, remains linked to Bayer Polymers, which is to become part of a new chemicals and polymers company being organized by the Bayer Group, Germany (See Textile World News, TW, December 2003).

Dorlastan Fibers is headed by Werner Nahl, president, Global Sales and Marketing. Other officers include: Karen Flowe, executive vice president and COO; Hal Martens, vice president, marketing; and David Stover, vice president, finance.

"With this fresh beginning, our group looks forward to a more entrepreneurial approach to conducting business," Nahl said. "We will continue to concentrate on our strengths and work with our customers on their specific needs."

Dorlastan Fibers maintains manufacturing facilities in Dormagen, Germany, and in Goose Creek, S.C. In recent years, both locations have undergone expansions that together have doubled the companys production capacity.
