Royal warrant holder Brintons eyes five-star boost from hotels
Royal warrant holder Brintons is looking to cash in on the revival of the five-star hotel boom in Dubai just two years after the Kidderminster-based fine carpet-maker was rescued from collapse.
Managing director Don Coates told The Independent on Sunday that Brintons will open an office in the emirate next week having recovered from “a pretty rough few years”.
By having a dedicated office in Dubai, Brintons can provide staff to oversee the installation of hard-wearing woven carpets. The company’s biggest-ever project involved covering 44 acres of floor at Delhi airport.
Brintons has seen its fortunes transformed since being taken over by US private equity group Carlyle in 2011, a deal that ended nearly 230 years of family ownership. Within five months, the loss-making group returned to profit and its turnover was £81m last year.
Mr Coates added: “In Dubai, cranes are back up – which is good news for the five-star hotels.”
