PGI To Install Spunmelt Line At Mexico Plant

Charlotte-based Polymer Group Inc. will invest $50 million in the installation of a multibeam
Reifenhäuser Reicofil 4 spunmelt line for hygiene applications at its facility in San Luis Potosi,
Mexico. The new line, which is expected to begin full commercial production in late 2008, will
manufacture high-quality, lightweight, strong fabrics used in fine-denier back sheet, leg cuffs and
other materials used in diapers. The new installation will increase PGI’s annual capacity by 15,000
metric tons.

“PGI is committed to serving the growing hygiene market with the highest quality products
available in the industry,” said Veronica M. “Ronee” Hagen, CEO, PGI. “This state-of-the-art line
will allow us to broaden our product offerings and meet the needs of customers in the US and Mexico
with the most advanced engineered products for hygiene applications.”
