Burlington WorldWide To Expand Raeford Plant

Burlington WorldWide, the apparel fabrics business of Greensboro, N.C.-based International Textile Group Inc., will invest some $7 million over the next three years to expand its plant in Raeford, N.C., adding 65 jobs to its military dress uniform fabric dyeing and finishing operation.

“We are delighted to expand our operations at the Raeford plant,” said Michael Ambler, executive vice president of manufacturing, Burlington WorldWide. “This is a wonderful facility, and we have extremely capable employees that will allow us to successfully grow our operation and establish an efficient and competitive domestic manufacturing platform.”

The expanded operation in Raeford follows Burlington’s announcement in late August that it would transition production from its Hurt, Va., dyeing and finishing operation to another facility, pending approval of economic incentives. The company now has received a $100,000 One North Carolina Fund grant and local matches from Hoke County and the City of Raeford to assist it in its expansion. The N.C. Department of Commerce also provided assistance.

The company made the decision to close the Hurt plant based on reduced market demand for the man-made and worsted wool apparel fabrics processed at that plant. The transition from Hurt to Raeford is expected to be complete around May or June 2007.
