In this paper we analyse the performance of some Canadian textile firms by using Data Envelopment Analysis (DEA). Using DEA we develop efficiency scores, efficiency frontiers and returns-to-scale for three segments of the sector, i.e., spinning, weaving and dyeing. Finally we develop models to solve optimal expansion or vertical integration related problems for firms with increasing and decreasing returns respectively.
