DuPontSA is a $1bn joint venture which develops, produces and sells polyester intermediate, resin and fibre products for markets throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Bruce Hawkins, chairman of board of trustees, said: Setting up a scheme from scratch is a huge task, and good advisers can do much to take the heat off the client. Our pensions, manager, Jo Whiterod, has worked with Gissings in the past and been impressed with their performance. We have been impressed with their helpfulness and efficiency so far and are encouraged to see the scheme becoming fully developed.
Andrew Dawson, deputy managing director at Gissings said: We are delighted to welcome DuPontSA on board. We look forward to working with them and continuing to provide a high level of support as their scheme develops.
