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

This adds a strong brand to their growing portfolio. INVISTA will continue to focus our capabilities on developing innovative technology based solutions for workwear, military and consumer applications where performance and protection create value for our customers.”
