Telford | News | Published:

The owner of Telford carpet maker Brintons has been linked with a move to rescue Axminster Carpets.

Investment company The Carlyle Group, which took over Brintons in 2011, is considering a deal for the historic Devon carpet manufacturer, according to reports.

The Worcestershire-based firm has a manufacturing site at Telford's Halesfield Industrial Estate.

Axminster went into administration last week with about 300 of the 400 staff losing their jobs.
