Graniteville Adds Technical Coating Line

Graniteville Specialty Fabrics, Graniteville, S.C. — a provider of specialty coatings and custom
coated fabrics for tent, awning, marine, military and other applications — has purchased a
high-speed 119-inch working-width technical coating line featuring advanced fabric measuring and
control technology. The new line will provide expanded width options for coated woven, knit and
nonwoven fabrics as well as films.

The company acquired the line from Spartanburg-based textile machinery, installation and
service provider Zimmer America Corp. and Mascoe Systems Corp., a Mauldin, S.C.-based manufacturer
of textile coating machinery and other textile finishing equipment.

Graniteville also has upgraded existing coating equipment and undertaken other initiatives
to further improve its customer services.
