Burlington Celebrates 90 Years

December 12, 2013, Greensboro, NC – Burlington, a division of International Textile Group, Inc. (ITG), recently celebrated its 90-year anniversary. Founded in 1923 by J. Spencer Love, Burlington became the world’s largest textile manufacturer in the world. The Burlington brand continues today as a leader in technology and textile innovations, supplying advanced performance fabrics to the apparel, military, active wear, barrier, and contract markets around the world.

Joseph L. Gorga, CEO of International Textile Group commented, “Burlington’s successes came from its innovations with new products, new machinery, and new branding strategies, and we congratulate the men and women of Burlington, both today and generations before us, for their contributions to this great brand.”

“Burlington’s first success came from the ambition and willingness of Spencer Love to take a risk and try a new fiber, called rayon,” said Jeff Peck, President of Burlington. “Throughout the past 90 years we’ve overcome many challenges by returning back to our entrepreneurial roots, and today Burlington’s legacy continues on a global scale, focused on innovation and advanced performance fabrics.”

Burlington’s performance technologies and brands are found today across the military, outdoor, active wear, barrier, apparel and safety markets and include No Fly Zone, MCS, Maxima, Class C, Durapel Plus, Easywool, Synatural Cool, and Sigma 4 Star.

    Because I often default to juvenile and idiotic a fair amount of the time, the first thing that popped into my head when I read that was the “American Dodgeball Association of America.”

    Congrats to Burlington on 90 years!
