Our reputation is such that we enjoy a nationwide reputation for quality, not only of the carpets and other floor coverings we provide, but also of the installation work we undertake.

From humble beginnings in a small North Wales town, Linney Cooper has progressed to opening two highly renowned showrooms in the local area as well as being recognised for our quality service by receiving two royal warrants from Her Royal Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales.

In January 2002 Linney Cooper was awarded the Queen’s Royal Warrant, later naming the Llandudno company head office ‘Jubilee House’ in recognition of the Queens Golden Jubilee Year. Futhermore In January 2003 Linney Cooper were once again, with great honour, awarded the Prince of Wales’ Royal Warrant. This is only through hard work, high standards and the dedication of all the staff that has made this possible.

After proudly surviving the poor economic conditions associated with the recession both the Queen’s and Prince of Wales Royal warrants were re-issued to Linney Cooper in 2012.

 

Royal Warrant information

A Royal Warrant of Appointment is a mark of recognition of those who have supplied goods or services to the Households of HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh or HRH The Prince of Wales for at least five years, and who have an ongoing trading arrangement.

The Monarch decides who may grant Royal Warrants. These are known as the Grantors: HM The Queen, HRH The Duke of Edinburgh and HRH The Prince of Wales.

The Royal Warrant is the document that appoints the company in its trading capacity, and is granted to a named individual, known as the Grantee. The Warrant gives the Grantee permission, and responsibility, for the display of the relevant Royal Arms in connection with the business.

Today there are around 800 Royal Warrant holders representing a huge cross-section of trade and industry, from individual craftspeople to global multi-nationals. They are united by a commitment to the highest standards of service, quality and excellence. Almost all Warrant holders are members of the Association.

The history of the Royal Warrant can be traced back to medieval times, when competition for Royal favour was intense and the Monarch had the pick of the country's best tradespeople. By the 15th century, the Lord Chamberlain, as head of the Royal Household, formally appointed tradespeople with a Royal Warrant of Appointment – a practice that continues to this day.

In the 18th century, Royal tradesmen began displaying the Royal Arms on their premises and stationery. In 1840, the Royal Warrant Holders Association was formed.
