Burlington Technologies To Add Cut/Sew Operation

Burlington Technologies Inc., Burlington, N.C., plans to expand its manufacturing operation in Burlington, investing $725,000 to add cut-and-sew capabilities and creating 110 jobs. The company has received a $120,000 grant from the One North Carolina Fund along with other incentives from state and local entities to support the project.

Burlington Technologies operates two core businesses: Burlington Manufacturing Services (BMS) — a package-yarn dyeing operation serving the home furnishings, apparel and industrial textile markets — and Se7en LLC — a producer of woven decorative fabrics for home furnishings, hospitality and contract markets. It also has two business affiliates: VitaFlex LLC — a manufacturer of elastic nonwoven products for various markets; and Diagnostic Chips LLC — a developer of diagnostic testing technologies for medical applications. The plans for the cut-and-sew operation are contingent upon the company receiving a contract from the U.S. military to produce military dress pants using wool-based fabrics already supplied to the military by Greensboro, N.C.-based International Textile Group.

"This would be a new capability for our company," said Mike Durham, president and CEO, Burlington Technologies. "The system would be very automated, very process-oriented and efficient, and ideally suited to a contract with the military. Once we get this up and running, it appears we could have a niche that would serve other customers and markets as well."
