Burlington Industries

Burlington Industries is a diversified U. S. fabric maker based in Greensboro, North Carolina. Founded in 1923, the company has operations in the United States, Mexico, and India and a global manufacturing and product development network based in Hong Kong. The company entered Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in December 2001. Its assets were acquired by International Textile Group (ITG) out of bankruptcy in late 2003. The Lees Carpet division was sold to Mohawk Industries as part of the deal. With only 500 employees remaining, the company moved out of its well-known headquarters building on Friendly Avenue in October 2004. ITG continues to operate the companies Burlington WorldWide Apparel and Burlington House Interior Fabrics.

ITG continues to protect with full force of law the brand name BURLINGTON, which it owns. This has, on occasion, caused conflicts with Burlington Coat Factory, which was found in contempt of court for mis-using the BURLINGTON trademark and must disclaim in its advertising that it is "not affiliated with Burlington Industries".
