Ulster Carpets is a family owned company with more than 70 years of dedication to quality, service, and the pursuit of excellence. Ulster's advanced PSYLO weaving technology has made the Jacquard obsolete and offers a wide range of benefits to customers including unparalleled use of color, design scale, consistency of product quality, and it also offers reduced lead times. Designs with up to 25 colors are possible allowing for unprecedented depth and texture in a onedimensional surface.
“The company's state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities are all based in the United Kingdom, operating under environmental policies accredited by ISO 14001,” explains John Louw of Ulster Carpets. The company has attained the Carbon Trust Standard for achievements in reducing its carbon footprint—a reduction of 52 percent has been achieved since 2001. Ulster’s contract products all contain a minimum of 50 percent rapidly renewable material and as a result of the recent addition of recycled components, all contract specifications now have a minimum of 20 percent recycled content and the products carry the Green Label Plus. “At Ulster we value our partnership with NEWH as an investment in the future of our business,” adds Louw. For 35 years, InterfaceFLOR has consistently led the industry through innovation and is now a leader to all industries in environmental sustainability. InterfaceFLOR is setting the pace for development of modular carpet using materials and processes that take less from the environment. Interface's worldwide carpet manufacturing facilities maintain third party registration to the ISO 14001 Environmental Management System, and the company has been recognized globally for its commitment to build environmental considerations into all of its business decisions. For busy hotel managers with little time and today's limited budgets flooring decisions should be easy. InterfaceFLOR has a flooring solution for hospitality that offers flexible design options, bold patterns, and colors, and an easy way to repair to keep floors looking great and up-to-date: modular carpet tiles. InterfaceFLOR carpet tiles work in corridors, public spaces, restaurants, exhibit spaces, meeting rooms, fitness areas, and guestrooms. And again, because of the easy onetile replacement option, each of these spaces can maintain a look that's fresh and new contributing to an overall better guest experience. InterfaceFLOR's standard 19.7-by-19.7-inch and one-meter sizes allow for large-scale patterns and unique designs.

B Carpet was co-founded by Burton Brown in 1979 as Burtco Enterprises. The original company printed and marketed 5/64 velour carpet imported from Belgium before investing in one of Tuftco’s first graphics tufting machines in the early 1980s. Most of these early graphics products were piece-dyed pin dots and simple patterns using spun white yarns.
“As the tufting machinery companies innovated, we accumulated an increasingly wider capability for producing patterned commercial carpet,” explains Elizabeth Moore, vice president of B Carpet. As demand for more organic and complex patterned carpet grew, the company purchased the first of four CYP machines, and soon afterwards formed a partnership that acquired the assets of CYP equipment manufacturer, Tapistron. With the additional design capacity provided by the company’s Infinity machine and MLCL machine, B Carpet remains at the forefront of commercial carpet production.
