Invista To Add Jobs At Waynesboro Plant

Wichita, Kan.-based integrated fibers and polymers manufacturer Invista has announced it will hire
approximately 20 to 25 spandex operating personnel at its Waynesboro, Va., manufacturing facility
as a result of improved competitiveness and better-than-expected demand in its spandex business.
The company expects the employees will begin working in August or September.

Nylon production at the plant, which Invista stopped in 2008 because of declining carpet
demand, remains idled
