Textile Industries Media Group, LLC Acquires the Textile Assets of Billian Publishing, Inc.

ATLANTA — December 2015 — Textile Industries Media Group, LLC, a newly formed Georgia-based corporation, has acquired Billian Publishing, Inc.’s textile assets including Textile World, Textiles Panamericanos and Textile World Asia, the affiliated magazines, websites and e-newsletters.

“After many years of ownership and support, Billian Publishing made the strategic decision to exit textile publishing,” said Jim Borneman, past-president, Billian Publishing. “I can’t thank the board and the Billian family enough for their many years of dedication and support of the textile industry through their commitment to the textile trade magazines. Also, their offer to sell the assets to Textile Industries Media Group, LLC creates a terrific opportunity for the brands to continue. Textile World has been published in one form or another since 1868, and the opportunity provided by Billian is an extremely generous one.”

“Many of the staff will continue their work for Textile Industries Media Group, LLC, and every effort is being made for a seamless transition. Textile Industries Media Group, LLC has every intention of continuing the magazines, websites and e-newsletters. There are some changes in store for the properties including new website designs that are tablet friendly and an updated e-newsletter platform. Thank you to our loyal readers, and for continued support from our advertisers during this time of change.”
