Brintons Carpets Limited, one of the UK’s most prestigious carpet designers and manufacturers, today announces the successful completion of two projects with the installation of bespoke carpet at the new airport terminals of Mumbai and Bangalore.The two contracts, worth over £1.2m, both feature designs based on local themes. The design for the iconic Mumbai International Terminal 2 draws inspiration from India’s national bird, the Peacock. The Bangalore design is based on traditional Indian Rangoli patterns. The two installations cover 36,000 square meters. These installations will withstand a combined footfall of over 50 million passengers per year.
The two projects mark further success for Brintons in Asia Pacific having previously carpeted prestigious locations including the Pan Pacific Hotel, Singapore and the Crown Casino, Melbourne, Australia. Brintons’ India based sales team are now focused on securing additional contracts and converting opportunities currently in its pipeline.
The success of these two projects are representative of Brintons’ broader international success. As a Royal Warrant Holder in recognition of supplying carpets to Britain’s Royal residences and having a rich history dating back to 1783, Brintons’ British brand is one of its key strengths in international markets, particularly in China and North America. To support its growing international footprint, Brintons opened a new sales office in Dubai last September.
Airport infrastructure, including design, is becoming increasingly important for countries looking to attract foreign tourists and business. Brintons has completed a number of other airport installations including Sydney Airport, Australia, Changi Airport, Singapore and Pudong Airport, China.
Commenting on the announcement, Brintons CEO, Duccio Baldi, said:
“A large proportion of Brintons’ business is conducted in international markets, where our heritage and reputation for quality stand out. Today’s announcement is also another example of Brintons’ ability to produce carpets that blend design and durability, which is why we have enjoyed such success with airports and similarly demanding projects to date. We will continue concentrating on winning additional contracts in international markets by providing both the very best in quality and design.”
