Courtaulds eyes a controlling stake in Lenzing (1995)

This clip from European Chemical News, 4th September 1995 is the first to surface suggesting that Courtaulds might be interested in taking control of Lenzing.  I seem to remember this was viewed as likely to create a monopoly in lyocell technology and tampon fibre and was frowned on by the authorities. (Clearly something changed between 1995 and 2004 when the monopoly was created in the reverse direction.)
