CLEVELAND, Ohio — National Safety Apparel (NSA) has acquired the TECGEN® brand of technologically advanced safety apparel designed for use in a wide range of industries including petrochemical and electrical power,
from INVISTA Ashburn Hill LLC.

look for strategic acquisitions that complement our organic growth in the protective clothing
markets that we serve. “

National Safety Apparel to acquire the TECGEN® brand assets. This adds a strong brand to their
growing portfolio. INVISTA will continue to focus our capabilities on developing innovative
