In a move to build its performance materials for work apparel, INVISTA, Wichita, Kan., has acquired Ashburn Hill Corp. and its associated intellectual property, including the TECGEN® brands of flame-resistant apparel.

“The TECGEN flame-resistant brands have quickly gained trust in the marketplace, and by coupling that expertise with INVISTA’s existing global work-wear capabilities, we have high expectations for the specialized garment segment,” says Jeff Brown, executive vice president for INVISTA Performance Materials. Employees from the Greenville, S.C., administration office and Angleton, Texas, manufacturing site will transition to INVISTA, along with Jon Heard, chief executive of Ashburn Hill.
