Burlington To Supply Fabrics For New Army Uniforms

Greensboro, N.C.-based Burlington Industries LLC, a division of Elevate Textiles, reports it will supply wool-blend fabrics for the new Army Green Service Uniform’s jacket, tie and bottoms. The fabrics will be manufactured in Raeford and Cordova, N.C. For more than two years, the Defense Logistics Agency, U.S. Army and several private industry partners worked to develop the new uniform fabric.

“At Burlington, we honor our public servants with a dedication to quality and innovation, to make sure those who serve are always served by the garments they wear,” said Allen Smith, president, Burlington. “Our Raeford brand of worsted wool fabrics are engineered to provide the soldier with advanced durability, comfort, and wrinkle-resistance, and provide Burlington’s unmatched color capability to ensure each uniform issued matches over the span of many years.”
