Starensier/Cosmo Expands Agion Technology Use

Newburyport, Mass.-based Starensier Inc. and its Cosmo Hong Kong Ltd. subsidiary have expanded
their use of Wakefield, Mass.-based Agion Technologies Inc.’s natural antimicrobial, odor-reducing
technology to include the use of Agion® in such brands as Columbia Sportswear, Crocs and Under
Armour. Agion technology may already be found in Starensier/Cosmo fabrics, finishes and composites
used in a wide range of footwear and apparel products from certain name brands.

“Increasing numbers of consumers are looking for antimicrobial protection in their footwear
and recognize the benefit of reduced odor in products that have antimicrobial protection,” said
Josh Van Dernoot, president, Starensier/Cosmo. “Through our exclusive partnership with Agion, we
can provide these solutions to consumers just by telling them to look for the trusted Agion name
for safe, natural protection in their footwear and apparel products.”
