Axminster Carpets supplied carpet to 825 vehicles for South Western Railway Class 450, 444, 442, 158 and 159 fleet. This marks Axminster’s largest contract to date, a pivotal moment for the company - one for the archive!
We’ve had really positive feedback on the quality of the new Axminster carpets on board our refurbished trains. The quality really makes a difference to the customer experience which is what we were confident we would get when we first commissioned these wool carpets from Axminster.
Neil Drury, Engineering Director for South Western Railway
The world-famous Devonshire factory overlooks the South Western line from Waterloo to Exeter which has always afforded Axminster employees a real affinity to the franchise.
Crafted from a premium wool blend, an Axminster Carpet offers exceptional resilience suited to high-traffic areas whilst acoustic properties help reduce noise between carriages thus enhancing the passenger experience.
Keen supporters of The Campaign for Wool, Axminster Carpets are proud to offer sustainable flooring solutions across the transport sector and now account for the majority of all Woven Train Carpet.
