Trützschler Switzerland Receives Order For Carpet Yarn Spinning System

Trützschler Switzerland AG — a provider of spinning components and plants for processing bulked
continuous filament (BCF) and industrial yarns; and a part of Germany-based Trützschler Group’s
Trützschler Man-made Fibers business — reports it has received an order for a symTTex carpet yarn
spinning system from a long-time customer of the former SwissTex Winterthur AG.

Last year, Trützschler Group acquired the BCF and industrial yarns business — including
personnel and intellectual property — of Switzerland-based SwissTex Winterthur, which has been
renamed Trützschler Switzerland AG
(see ”

. Trützschler will deliver the system to
the company, which is based in China, in the second half of 2013.
