Navis Global Ships 200th Machine To Honduras

Navis Global, formerly known as Tube-Tex — a Lexington, N.C.-based designer and producer of
textile finishing equipment — reports that Honduras-based apparel manufacturer Bay Island
Sportswear Inc. and its knitting and dyeing facility Simtex International recently purchased a Pak
Nit II SP Compactor. The purchase marks the 200th Navis Global machine shipped to Honduras; and the
first compactor and fifth TubeTex machine installed by Bay Island.

In making the decision to buy the machine from Navis Global/TubeTex, Bay Island cited its
good experience with prior TubeTex equipment and the availability of a local service center and
parts warehouse in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. Navis Global has installed tubular pads, relax dryers,
nappers, open-width compactors, pin tenters and more than 130 compactors at various companies
throughout Honduras.
