It has a good mix of clients within both the public and private sectors (inc NHS, Local Authorities, Schools etc) and enjoys consistent levels of business, such is its reputation and the accreditations it holds.

The company provides a comprehensive turnkey solution to its clients. By involving itself in projects at an early stage it provides expert technical and design advice backed up with accurate pricing, bills of materials and on time installation. The business is a fully accredited installer of all leading types of flooring so can provide advice on the most sutiable material and brand for each project.
