BURLINGTON, N.C. — A textile manufacturer has received a state grant that would help it create 110 jobs in Burlington.

The governor’s office announced Friday Burlington Technologies received a $120,000 state grant with plans to expand over the next three years. The company currently employs more than 60 people in Burlington.

The expansion will take place if the company is awarded a U.S. military contract to cut and sew blue dress pants. Friday’s news release said the company is currently working to secure the contract.

The jobs would pay $23,000 a year plus benefits.

In January, Alamance County commissioners approved $55,000 in incentives toward the expansion.
