Ulster Carpets has received a Royal Warrant from Her Majesty The Queen.
As one of Northern Ireland’s leading exporters, the company, which manufactures luxury carpets for customers around the world from its Portadown headquarters, becomes one of three Royal Warrant holders based in Northern Ireland.
Nick Coburn CBE, Group Chief Executive, said: “Receiving the Royal Warrant in Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee year is a real honour.
“This achievement has taken many years of dedicated work from our staff and it further solidifies the huge success and progression of Ulster Carpets, especially as we look forward to celebrating our 85th anniversary next year. “
Still based on the same site where Nick’s grandfather founded the business, Ulster’s forward-thinking and innovative approach has helped them expand globally from their headquarters in Portadown.
“Ulster has always been synonymous with quality carpets for the home, but we also design and manufacture bespoke carpets for the world’s leading hotels, casinos and cruise ships,” he said.
“One of the main reasons for this success is that we are the only fully integrated woven carpet manufacturer operating entirely in the UK. From sourcing the highest quality wool, spinning and dyeing the yarn, to custom designing and weaving our luxury rugs, we have complete control over every step.
“We are pursuing a significant investment program to create and secure jobs in the UK, which will grow our business around the world.”
To mark this year’s Jubilee, the Northern Ireland Office has launched a competition for primary school children to design a rug, which will be made by Ulster Carpets before being presented to the Queen.
Ulster Carpets also continues to work closely with the Royal Household to develop designs for Royal Residences.
