Heberlein® Becomes Fibrevision Vendor

Heberlein® Fiber Technology Inc., Switzerland, is now responsible for the sales and support of a
range of Fibrevision products in half of the world markets, including all Eastern and Western
European countries except Italy and Germany.

The new arrangement comes as a result of Saurer AG’s and Heberlein Fiber Technology Inc.’s close
cooperation following Switzerland-based Saurer’s investment in England-based Fibrevision and
purchase of Heberlein in 2005.

Heberlein now has sales and support responsibility for Fibrevision’s FibreTQS online
monitoring optical sensors.

Heberlein will handle the following Fibrevision products: microscan at line quality control
equipment; and FibreTQS online monitoring for partially oriented yarn and friction-textured yarn,
draw-textured yarn, air-textured yarn and air covering.Heberlein will continue to offer Fraytec
monitoring for technical yarns. It has discontinued the development of Viscotec monitoring for
air-textured yarns.

Fibrevision initially will continue to handle the sale of FibreTQS for technical yarns and other
specialty products.
