Wilton Carpets Commercial has recently held a country fete and party on its picturesque production site in the Wiltshire countryside to say thank you to its staff and to celebrate a hugely successful 20 years of business.
Two decades ago, in January 1995, the picture was very different when the owners of the factory closed the doors resulting in a loss of over 100 jobs. In April of the same year, the doors of the factory were open once again as a new British company was formed and Wilton Carpets Commercial was born – with a focus on delivering to the hospitality industry beautifully designed axminster and wilton carpet, for which the town of Wilton is famous.
Since then, Wilton Carpets Commercial has made carpet for leading venues across the world and is now enjoying a reputation as one of the foremost specialists in axminster, tufted and wilton carpets for hospitality environments.
Peter Le Count, managing director, comments:
“The factory is busier than it has ever been and it makes us all feel very proud that we are continuing to produce such good quality carpet with outstanding design. We have focused on making carpet for the hospitality and leisure sectors, including hotels, cruise ships and the like. We now have a business working 24 hours a day and our customers are appreciating the design and service Wilton Carpets Commercial brings to them. We are expecting to report record profit levels this year and are investing in new machinery for further growth.”
Hosted on the picturesque site on Saturday 11th April, staff enjoyed traditional country fete games, a beer tent, live four-piece band and a delicious hog roast. BBC South Today also reported from the event, keen to show just how the atmosphere and atmosphere had changed since it last gave an account of the closure and loss of over 100 jobs 20 years previously. Some of the staff at Wilton have been with the company since the very beginning and many for 10 years or more, with generations of families also working for the company. Wilton Carpets Commercial remains a local community-focused business with the exceptional loyalty and a desire to succeed from all staff, a major factor in its success.
