MOBILE, Ala. – August 7, 2008 – Masland Contract has announced two new additions
to its eNeRGy line, Empire and Enterprise, manufactured with Zeftron’s premium nylon
6ix fiber systems. Empire and Enterprise both carry the prestigious Enviro6ix

nylon color offering.

Zeftron nylon is a closed-loop recyclable nylon 6 yarn system which can contribute to
LEED certification, making Empire and Enterprise perfect for any interior concerned with
green building design and construction.

“Empire and Enterprise are perfect for any commercial interior needing a sophisticated
product with true sustainability,” said Tim Blount, business leader of Zeftron nylon. “And
because these styles are made with Zeftron nylon, specifiers can trust that Empire and
Enterprise come with the legacy of style, performance and recyclability Zeftron has built
over the past 40 years.”

Empire and Enterprise are coordinating products, both inspired by the geometry and
lines that exemplify architectural order. Their tailored look is complemented by subtle
color shifts that are appropriate for any urban space. Each style is available in nine
sophisticated colorways that create a continental yet inviting workspace.

“The vibrant colors paired with the visually stimulating pattern of Empire and Enterprise,
make these two style the perfect fit for use in any commercial interior,” said Wes Gunter,
contract marketing manager, Masland Contract. “With these two new products,
Masland’s eNReGy line continues to offer end users and specifiers the best options for
their commercial marketplace needs.”
