INVISTA Performance Surfaces and Materials, a leading manufacturer of products used in protective, military apparel, is aligning with Ashburn Hill Corp. to deliver the next generation of industrial fire-retardant garments.

By investing in Ashburn Hill Corp.'s innovative patented fiber technology for industrial fire-retardant apparel applications, INVISTA plans to expand its offerings in protective clothing to the industrial segment.

“As concerns about industrial worker safety increase, a wide range of industries are requiring fire-retardant apparel in their manufacturing facilities,” said Jeff Brown, INVISTA's vice president of nylon performance materials.

“We believe that INVISTA's presence in this market space with Ashburn Hill Corp. will deliver superior value by providing thermally protective and comfortable industrial garments.”

Industrial fire-retardant apparel protects workers – such as employees in petrochemical manufacturing, electrical utility capacities, and firefighting – against fire hazards with intense heat and flame associated with flash fires and electric arc discharge.

Ashburn Hill Corp. is an Angleton, Texas based manufacturer of FR clothing used in industry and fire fighting to protect workers from the dangers of fire, heat and similar environmental hazards. Ashburn Hill Corp delivers innovative protective apparel garments through its unique, advanced family of inherently flame resistant fibers.
