Description

Description: 

This well established manufacturer of high-quality carpets and carpet tiles has developed a robust end-to-end design to manufacture process which is all done in-house and in the UK.

Established in its current form for over 20 years - but with a sister company which has been trading for over 100 years - the range of products which the company specialises in is designed to appeal to a number of commercial sectors.

These markets include commercial carpet tiles for the office segment, hotel, education (including schools and universities) and retail. The company has supplied to some of the largest corporations and most prestigious educational institutions across the globe.

As well as traditional tufted carpet-tiles, half of the product range is manufactured from a unique fibre-bonded process which is a different kind of construction to traditional products and are designed to give carpets a tougher and more heavy-duty finish. All products are rated class 33 - heavy commercial application - with a minimum warranty of 10 years.

In terms of designs, the company’s commercial carpet tile ranges offer potential partners an almost infinite variety of modern colour combinations, textures and patterns, which are attractive to architects, interior designers and flooring contractors. The range includes specialised entrance flooring for offices, educational establishments, commercial and retail properties.

The manufacturing operations are based in a carbon neutral factory which has a state-of-the-art ventilation system, making it one of the cleanest in Europe.

The company is currently represented in a number of countries throughout Europe and is looking to build on steady overseas growth over the last 10 years by developing sales in new territories.

Therefore, the company seeks experienced distributors or agents worldwide in the commercial flooring and building products sector with a strong network of direct contacts including architects, property developers and commercial buyers.
