Suessen Celebrates 10 Years Of EliTe® Compact Spinning

Germany-based spinning manufacturer Spindelfabrik Suessen GmbH is celebrating 10 years of its
EliTe® Compact Spinning system for short- and long-staple spinning frames.

In 1998, Suessen delivered the first EliTe system to its Austria-based customer and yarn
producer Linz Textil Holding AG; and in 1999, the company presented the system to the market at
ITMA in Paris.

To date, Suessen’s EliTe compact spinning system is running on more than 2,800,000 ring
spindles globally, amounting to about 45 percent of the total market of compact ring spindles. More
than 1,300,000 of those are running on spindles in India alone.

Suessen will demonstrate its new EliTe CompactSet V5 with optional EliTwist® applications and
new core yarn COREflex® attachments at India-ITME, to be held in Bangalore Nov. 15-22, 2008.
