operational by the end of the second quarter of 2015.

launches under the FlexAire^TM brand. These new products offer innovative
features that respond to growing consumer demand for higher softness, better
fit, comfort and breathability," said Alvaro Vaselli, Vice President of

innovative high-quality personal care products, and we continue to see
exciting growth opportunities in this business segment," added Mr. Vaselli.

and continued leadership in quality, delivery and service," said Mary Jane
Hellyar, President of Tredegar Film Products. "Our new FlexAire^TM elastic
products continue in this tradition, creating increased value for both our
customers and the end consumer."
