Trevira Begins Restructuring

Germany-based Trevira GmbH – a company of the India-based Reliance Group and a manufacturer of
high-value branded polyester fibers and filament yarns for the apparel, home textiles and
automotive industries as well as hygiene and technical applications – has begun restructuring after
experiencing a severe decline in sales caused by the global economic crisis. Reliance Group has
appointed Elke Bäuerle managing director to head the restructuring.

“It is now our task to maintain Trevira’s sound and profitable core,” Bäuerle said. “Trevira
has good products and is fundamentally competitive.”
