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.
