More praise for Axminster Carpets

Former civic leader says Royal Warrant reflects quality of products.

A former Mayor of Axminster has heaped praise on the town’s world famous carpet factory after it was granted a royal warrant.

Barrie Draper, after reading the news on the front page of the Midweek Herald, said: “I wish to compliment the group managing director, Josh Dutfield, his management and all staff, both past and present, for achieving the very great honour of being awarded a Royal Warrant by Her Majesty the Queen in this her Diamond Jubilee year.

“This obviously reflects the quality of their product, their professionalism and attention to detail.

“In these trying times, it is great to hear of a successful business against fairly stiff opposition from both here and abroad.”
