Nick Coburn CBE, Group Managing Director, and Joyce McIvor, Contract Sales Director for UK and Ireland, mark the news that Ulster Carpets have been granted a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty The Queen
Ulster Carpets have been granted a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty The Queen. The leading designer and manufacturer of bespoke carpets for the hospitality sector is based in Northern Ireland and has worked on some of the world’s leading hotels, casinos and cruise ships.
“To receive the Royal Warrant in Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee year is a real honour," says Nick Coburn CBE, Group Managing Director. "This achievement has taken several years of dedicated work by our staff and it further underpins the huge success and progression of Ulster Carpets, particularly as we look forward to celebrating our 85th anniversary next year.”
Still based on the same site that Nick’s grandfather founded the company on, Ulster’s forward-thinking and innovative approach has helped them to grow globally.
Nick added, “Our ability to create stunning designs is what sets us apart around the world. We have developed our own patented weaving technology and continue to invest in new innovations to move this forward. This works in tandem with our talented designers, who have the artistic flair to meet the design expectations of the world’s best interior designers.”
Ulster’s integrated manufacturing process is also an important factor in the company’s success, alongside high levels of service to meet project deadlines.
“One of the key reasons behind this success is that we are the only fully integrated manufacturer of woven carpet operating entirely in the UK. From sourcing the highest quality wool and spinning and dyeing the yarn, through to the bespoke design and weaving of our luxury carpets, we have complete control over every step.
“We are continuing a significant investment programme to create and secure jobs in the UK, which will grow our business across the world.”
To mark this year’s Jubilee, the Northern Ireland Office have launched a competition for primary school children to design a rug, which will be manufactured by Ulster Carpets before being presented to The Queen.
Ulster Carpets is also continuing to work closely with the Royal Household to develop designs for Royal Residences.
