H&V Announces European Investment In NanoWave Production

EAST WALPOLE, Mass. — October 16, 2013 — Hollingsworth & Vose announces plans to add NanoWave®
Filtration Media production capability in its plant in Hatzfeld, Germany, to support the rapid
growth in demand for high performance filter media. NanoWave, which won the IDEA13 Achievement
Award for rolled gods, achieves higher levels of filtration efficiency at reduced pressure drops.
The Hatzfeld production line is expected to start operations by mid 2015 and will serve European
customers. H&V currently manufactures NanoWave media in the United States in Floyd, Virginia.

“In addition to the European capacity expansion, further performance improvements and next
generation production developments will result in increased service levels for our European
customers,” comments Jochem Hofstetter, vice president & managing director, EMEA.
