NEW YORK — With a new president — DuPont veteran Basil "Sonny" Walker — and a new strategy, Nylstar Inc. is trying to step up its presence in the U.S. market.
Nylstar is a joint venture between France’s Rhodia and Italy’s Snia that has grown over the past eight years to become a key nylon supplier in Europe. The company opened its first U.S. nylon factory 16 months ago in Martinsville, Va., and is setting itself aggressive growth plans. It sells under the Meryl brand name.

"That's something that resonates with me too because I'm so locked into a number. If I go over that number it completely ruins my day so it's nice to get detached from the number on the scale." - Chelsea Handler on Kelly LeVeque's book "Body Love." #wwdeye (📷: John Salangsang)
