Company fell into administration following a sharp increase in the cost of raw materials and a fall in sales
About 300 staff have lost their jobs at Axminster Carpets after the company that supplied Brighton Pavilion and Clarence House fell into administration.
The failed 250-year-old family-run business collapsed following a sharp increase in the cost of raw materials and a fall in sales, mainly due to householders turning to wooden flooring instead of carpets.
Staff to be cut with immediate effect were told the news in the factory’s canteen on Tuesday morning in a statement read out by administrators and management.
It is thought the company had debts of about £20m, primarily with PNC Financial Services, which it was unable to pay.
Chief executive Joshua Dutfield said: “Trading has been difficult and although it saddens the board to make the decision to enter administration it could not be avoided.”
He said staff had been paid, however, sources close to the company said payment is not due in staff accounts until Wednesday.
The joint administrator from Duff and Phelps, Benjamin Wiles, said: “We recognise the importance of the business to the local community and will be seeking to work closely with management and all key stakeholders.”
A buyer is expected to emerge for the company in the next few days which still has customers including various airlines, hotels and cruise ship suppliers.
Axminster Carpets, based in Devon, has a rich heritage that includes supplying carpets to King George III and making the coronation carpet for George VI. Its carpets can also be found in the Royal Albert Hall and 10 Downing Street, while last year it was given a royal warrant.
TORONTO, ONTARIO–(Marketwire – Jan. 3, 2013) - Caledonia Mining Corporation (“Caledonia” or the “Company”) (TSX:CAL)(OTCQX:CALVF)(AIM:CMCL) confirms that a Notice of Special Meeting of Shareholders, a Proxy and Information Circular and a Proxy form (collectively, the “Meeting Materials“) have been distributed by post to Caledonia’s shareholders of record registered as at December 20th, 2012.

Shareholder approval is required for both of these actions.
Wolseley shed its £3bn debt burden in four years and is paying £350m special dividend by avoiding balance sheet acrobatics
Repairing Wolseley, the plumbing and building materials supplier, has proved a remarkably speedy job. Four years ago, after the last chief executive’s debt-fuelled acquisition spree at the top of the market, the company’s borrowings stood at almost £3bn and an emergency £1bn rights issue was required. Now the business is free of debt and can afford a £350m special dividend.
How did Ian Meakins, the first boss in 100 years to be summoned from outside Wolseley, do it? By reminding everyone that supplying construction materials is essentially a dull exercise in logistics, prone to cyclical rises and falls, and is thus best conducted without the balance sheet gymnastics that characterised Chip Hornsby’s reign.
That was always the Wolseley way in the old days and the company seems to have had little difficulty in rediscovering its old character, especially in (slightly) gentler conditions in the US. The back-to-basics approach has been painful for those who have lost their jobs, and a few strategic headaches remain, like what to do with the French operation. But dullness is proving rewarding for shareholders. Why did they ever allow the last management to seek excitement via a debt binge?
