Trützschler Switzerland To Handle Texturis’ Spare Parts Activities

Effective immediately, Trützschler Switzerland AG will take over spare parts activities previously
managed by Texturis AG, also based in Switzerland, because Texturis shareholders have decided to
cease business operations. Texturis was formed in April 2012 by a group of SwissTex employees to
ensure continued market availability of spare parts for SwissTex bulk continuous filament systems.
Switzerland-based Gebr. Bräm AG was in charge of founding Texturis.

Current orders will be processed by Texturis, but moving forward, all activities will be
handled by Trützschler Switzerland in partnership with Gebr. Bräm.

Martin Kümin, formerly employed by SwissTex and later Texturis, will manage the spare parts
division for Trützschler Switzerland effective April 15.
