A New Age: Burlington Industries Embraces Nanotechnology for Fabrics

The new man running Burlington Industries is a believer in Nanotechnology, and he sees the old economy firm he acquired using the latest technology. During a “Trade Town Hall Meeting” at the Emerging Issues Forum on Monday, Wilbur Ross, chairman of the International Steel Group and recent purchaser of NC's Burlington Industries, touted the advantages of emerging nanotechnology in textiles. Ross pointed out that Burlington was using nanotechnology - the science of the very, very small - to create unique products such as water-repelling cotton and silk fabrics called Nanocare.
