Independent Retailers

As carpet manufacturers and flooring suppliers with more than 30 years in the business, we understand that independent retailers are the life-blood of the industry. You work in highly competitive markets and strive to retain that crucial face-to-face interaction with your customers that makes them want to come back to your store again and again.

That's why we support all our independent retailers with a wide range of services. Your account manager will visit your store as often as possible, to make sure everything's working well for you, and will always be on the end of the phone or email to respond to your questions or any issues you have. We work hard with you to help you understand our products so you can sell them with confidence, and we build great-looking point-of-sale areas to help showcase the products you stock.

All this, plus a complete range of flooring for home and business. As well as supplying carpet; we also supply hardwood, laminate flooring and LVT and the latest in vinyl designs, helping your customers to find the perfect flooring for them – whether it’s just one room or the whole property. From luxury carpet to warm, comfortable vinyl, we can help.
