Firth Carpets History

Firth Carpets was founded in 1822 by Edwin Firth, the son of a Heckmondwike cloth finisher.

The company passed from father to son until 1921 reaching its peak just after the 2nd world war.

Despite continual innovation and investment, including several changes of ownership, Firth closed in 2002.

In 2009 the Firth brand was revived by Michael Rooney, a former director of the Company, determined to recreate the quality and service traditions of the original organisation.
