Chemours rings in the changes

22 July 2015

The Chemours Company (‘Chemours’) marked its spin-off from DuPont on July 1, 2015 by ringing the opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange. "Just as today’s bell ringing ceremony signals the opening of a new trading day for the stock exchange, it marks a new and exciting beginning for Chemours as well. In just two days, we will complete our transition to an independent, publicly traded company that has both the wisdom and experience of 200 years as DuPont and the energy of a start-up out to make a name for itself,” said Mark Vergnano, Executive Vice President, DuPont and CEO designate of Chemours.

"As The Chemours Company, we will enjoy leading market positions in titanium technologies, fluoroproducts and chemical solutions,” he continued, "positions propelled and sustained by our commitment to technology leadership, safer and more efficient processes, leading application development and world-class products and enabling ingredients. We will be a nimble and responsive corporation that will define our success by our customers’ successes, as well as the value we bring to our shareholders. This is an exciting day for us all.”
