When our great grandfather and grandfather founded Langhorne Carpets in 1930, our company was one of many thriving American manufacturers. Today, our Bucks County, PA-based, family-run business is a rarity in our region and in our country.
Langhorne began with six “velvet” looms purchased from Henry Ford after his company found them too complicated, cumbersome, and costly for a mass producer of “affordable” automobiles to run. Our team, our family, took on the challenge of weaving the highest quality Jacquard Wilton wool carpets anywhere. We did not make carpets for car interiors, but instead for the interiors of fine homes and iconic structures in the U.S. and abroad. More than 80 years later, we proudly weave our carpets using the same methods our ancestors did. Technology has changed and assisted us along the way, but we’d be nowhere without the wise, dedicated and diligent workers and artisans of Langhorne Carpet.
In this season of celebrating and giving, of gathering with family and friends, we’d like to take a moment to honor our staff—the Langhorne family. Heartfelt gratitude to: Andy, Saul, Jose, Benny, Hector Pagan, Cheka, Wanda, John, Sue, Felipa, Vanessa, Danielle, Carmen, Ana, Maria, June, Kim, Manny, Diane, Michelle, Andi, Mark, Jerry, Lydia, Matt, Luis, Oti, Grace and Hector.
Thank you. Wishing you and your families, both at home and at work and in your communities, healthy and happy holidays and all the best for 2017.
Cozy up on one of our carpets. We promise it’ll do you a world of good.
