Ulster Carpets offers high quality, luxurious axminster, wilton and loop carpets.
We understand that no two clients are alike. A banquet hall in a grand hotel, a corporate office suite, or a cruise ship – all have different requirements, demanding differing types of design and needing a varying degree of durability.
We’ve segmented our business and manufacturing processes to cater to those operating within the commercial or residential spheres, making your buying process as seamless as possible.
We have a proud history of supplying superior carpets to the commercial, hospitality and residential sectors, and we’ll continue to progress in both design and technological innovation.
We produce some of the finest quality carpets in the world.
To learn more about our processes, watch our process videos.
Our superior quality did not happen by accident, but as a result of years of fine tuning our craft to ensure that only the best Ulster Carpets leave our factory.
We manage every part of the manufacturing process from processing the wool at Ulster Yarns in Dewsbury, through to dyeing, weaving and finishing in Portadown. This level of control results in the unrivalled quality of an Ulster carpet.
While our business is focused on innovation and progress, our place as a family owned business within the local community is also very important to us.
We support our local community in many ways including the John Wilson Memorial Trust, charity initiatives and corporate sponsorship of the Ulster Orchestra and Ulster Youth Rugby.
We are proud to connect our brand to organisations which embody similar values to ourselves. This reflects our well established tradition of striving to help the local community.
Throughout the years Ulster Carpets have supported a diverse range of charities. Our most recent corporate partnership was with Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice. In our three year partnership we were able to raise £28k collectively. This was a tremendous achievement and we were extremely proud to be able to hand over this amount to the staff at the children’s hospice who carry out invaluable care for their patients and families every day.
2020 has been a tough year for everyone particularly more so on some families who have had to do without essential items such as food. 1 in 5 of the UK population live below the poverty line. The John Wilson Memorial Trust which was formed in memory of the late John Wilson, son of Ulster Carpets founder George Wilson, donated £10,000 to their local foodbank which enabled them to purchase a van. Diane Guiney, Project Manager of Craigavon Area Foodbank explained, “Every single one of our volunteers has one thing in mind – to help as many people that we possibly can. That includes the provision of food, but also releasing hope and a sense of value to those we serve. I truly believe that, thanks to the John Wilson Memorial Trust, this van is going to be absolutely vital for us to manage the increasing numbers of those in our community who find themselves in crisis.”
