Suessen Delivers 3 Millionth EliTe®Compact Spindle

Germany-based ring- and rotor-spinning technology supplier Spindelfabrik Suessen GmbH has delivered
its 3 millionth EliTe®Compact Spindle to Bangladesh-based Noman Group, a vertical textile
manufacturer that operates six spinning mills running more than 400,000 conventional ring spindles.

The spindle is one among 36,000 EliTeCompact spindles recently installed on a Jingwei F1520
ring spinning machine used to process combed cotton into yarn that is woven into fabric in Noman’s
weaving mills. Noman, which now has more than 76,000 such spindles installed, also has ordered more
spindles to equip 40 additional ring spinning machines, with delivery expected later this year.

Suessen commemorated the delivery of the 3 millionth EliTeCompact spindle in a ceremony
during which company management presented a symbolic award to Noman Founder and Chairman Nurul
