Ribbon Cutting Ceremony To Celebrate Auburn Manufacturing’s Recent Plant Expansion

AUBURN, Maine — November 18, 2013 — Auburn Manufacturing, Inc. (AMI) is pleased to announce that it
will hold a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the recent expansion at its Kitty Hawk Industrial Park
facility on Thursday, December 5, at 10am.  

“This expansion is part of our strategic plan to optimize our manufacturing facilities, right
here in Maine, where we started 34 years ago,” said AMI President/CEO, Kathie Leonard. “By
increasing our Auburn facility’s footprint by 75%, we can now better serve our current customers’
needs with high-quality textiles delivered on time anywhere in the world. This plant expansion also
provides the extra space we need to capitalize on untapped markets with innovative new products.
Added investments in our human resources, equipment and innovation are also moving forward as we
speak. Our plan is to grow AMI by 30% in the next three years.”

Local, state and federal official, banking partners, clients, suppliers and other supporters
are invited to participate in the ribbon-cutting event. “We’re delighted they have agreed to join
our celebration. Our dream of expanding this facility was made possible in part by each of them,”
said Leonard.

AMI produces advanced textiles for hundreds of extreme temperature industrial/institutional
applications throughout the world, including fire protection during hot work, energy-saving
mechanical insulation systems, safety apparel, expansion joints and many maintenance-related
applications. The additional manufacturing space will allow AMI to facilitate current growth and
provide the extra space needed for a continued focus on innovation in the areas of blast
protection, fire-retardant barriers for data centers, thermal breaks for equipment, and other
emerging markets.
