Burlington Technologies To Add Cut And Sew Operation, Create 110 Jobs

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 currently operates two core businesses including Burlington Manufacturing Services (BMS) — a package-yarn dyeing operation serving the home furnishings, apparel and industrial textile markets — and Se7en LLC — a manufacturer of woven decorative fabrics for home furnishings, hospitality and contract applications. The company also has two business affiliates including 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."
