Dupont: Chad discusses post-September 11 security, economic outlook in article

In the latest issue of Barron's, DuPont Chairman and CEO Chad Holliday is among a number of U.S. business leaders who discuss how companies are operating and have strengthened security following the September 11 terrorist attacks in New York City and Washington, D.C.

In the article in the weekly business publication, Chad says DuPont and other companies have to take precautions to protect employees and operations.

"We have to assume the worst, and that means assuming that U.S. corporations could become the target," he notes. "I'm not going to share any details, but you can safely assume that we are putting additional security on all our hazardous-materials truck and train transports. We are also re-evaluating travel plans and looking at how to prevent worst-case scenarios at each of our plants."

Chad says the economic impact of the attacks has been muted. "From what I can gather talking to our key people, it will have less of an impact than I expected," he adds.
