Brintons has been at the forefront of the woven carpet industry since its inception in 1783, only seven years after The United States declared independence. Since that time the company has been through countless European as well as global wars, unstable economies and numerous pandemics.
Through these years of uncertainty, Brintons has designed and implemented its own looms, pioneered the use of the now industry-wide standard yarn blend consisting of 80% wool and 20% nylon, successfully broke into the Americas market and acquired F.D. Agnella in Poland in 2015. This acquisition further strengthened the company’s commercial position in key European markets while extending the service to clients across the globe.
In the past 237 years, Brintons has not only endured, they have thrived.
At the core of Brintons are strong, resilient and resourceful people, some who are fourth, fifth and sixth generation team members. Since 1783, this team, as time has proven, has adapted and weathered the storm.
Today brings new challenges. We are seeing nations around the world under lockdown while ‘stay-at-home’ orders are starting across the United States due to the Coronavirus. Championing integrity as a core value, we wanted to honestly relay to all of our clients how Brintons is being affected and what to expect in the coming days.
These mandated shutdowns are causing us to cease operations at some of our facilities as well as presenting challenges in obtaining raw materials. With our global footprint we are able to continue producing and shipping our award-winning carpet even with these short-term supply chain issues. The mandated government shutdowns at some of our existing plants will directly contribute to extended lead-times and we will do everything possible to ensure our commitments are met to best of our ability during this global pandemic.
We are committed to transparency in our operations and will work to update our teams and clients as news arises regarding the Coronavirus pandemic. At this time Brintons is ensuring our staff and their families are safe and healthy. The majority of our teams are working from home and practicing the social distancing we need to collectively shut the spread of the virus down. We are actively working on projects daily and we are here to help in any way possible.
