WILMINGTON, Del. - Burlington Industries Inc., once the world's largest textile maker, filed yesterday for bankruptcy protection after competition from low-cost Asian imports eroded profits and left it saddled with debt. Burlington follows rivals Thomaston Mills Inc. and Worldtex Inc., which sought bankruptcy protection from creditors this year as foreign competition and declining sales continued to claim U.S. fabric makers. Burlington, based in Greensboro, N.C., listed $1.18 billion in assets and $1.1 billion in debts in its Chapter 11 petition filed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del. J.P. Morgan Chase & Co. will provide Burlington with a $190 million credit line while it reorganizes operations and cuts debt.
