Horgen -- (12th June 2008) -- Dow Fiber Solutions (DFS) and the long standing textile wholesale company Weber&Heusser GmbH & Co. KG are to become cooperation partners. As of immediately and acting from its headquarters in Albstadt (in the German province of Baden-Warttemberg), Weber&Heusser will handle the distribution of the revolutionary DOW XLA fiber in the German speaking countries. DOW XLA is the world's first olefin-based stretch fiber which is inherently resistant to aggressive chemicals and high temperatures.

With over 85 years of experience, Weber&Heusser not only offers competence in matters of textiles and technology, but also optimal services in respect to delivery and customer care. For these reasons it makes the ideal partner for DFS. Jose Garcia-Alegre, Global Sales Director for DFS, explains: "Our substantiated knowledge of the textile market continues to allow us to find new and optimized process solutions. We are confident that the cooperation with such a strong partner will lead to offering excellent service to our customers."

The improvements to distribution won't only profit customers though. The company also expects positive effects on demand and the increased use of DOW XLA in the textile value chain. With a distribution partner in Germany, DFS optimizes its transport routes and increases efficiency of distribution of DOW XLA
