DELISLE, Miss. - Less than five months after the DuPont titanium dioxide manufacturing plant near Delisle, Miss., suffered a direct hit from Hurricane Katrina, the company announced on January 25, 2006, that manufacturing operations have resumed at the site.

"The work done at DeLisle since the hurricane represents a huge step toward resumption of normal production levels at that plant," said Richard C. Olson, vice president and general manager of DuPont Titanium Technologies. "All of our other titanium dioxide plants in the United States, Mexico and Taiwan are scheduled to capacity and performing well. We're literally working around the clock to restore DeLisle to that point, as well."
