INVISTA, headquartered in Wichita, Kansas, United States, is the world's largest integrated fiber, resin and intermediates company. DuPont originally formed the company as a subsidiary in 2003 from its textile fibers division and named it DuPont Textiles and Interiors while a permanent identity was established. The company was given the trademarked name INVISTA and was then sold to privately owned Koch Industries in April 2004. Koch Industries combined the newly acquired organization with their KoSa subsidiary to complete the INVISTA company.
INVISTA's products include brands such as Lycra fiber, Stainmaster carpeting, Cordura durable fabrics, Tactel nylon fiber, and Antron commercial carpet fiber as well as a variety of polyester resins and specialty intermediates.
In 2009, Koch subsidiary INVISTA agreed to pay a $1.7 million civil penalty and spend up to $500 million to correct self-reported environmental violations at its facilities in seven states. Prior to the settlement, the company had disclosed to the EPA more than 680 violations after auditing 12 facilities acquired from DuPont in 2004. In June 2012, DuPont & Invista agreed to an out of court settlement to resolve indemnification issues related to these environmental issues 
INVISTA was mentioned by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for self-reporting environmental violations. According to the EPA, "the emission reductions resulting from correcting these violations will result in estimated annual human health benefits valued at over $325 million, including 30 fewer premature deaths per year, 2,000 fewer days/year when people would miss school or work, and over 9,000 fewer cases of upper and lower respiratory symptoms."
