Published:  21 July, 2014

Carpet & Flooring has opened a new regional base in Glasgow and celebrated with a branch open day. In addition to the Glasgow branch, a second Scottish branch has been opened in Aberdeen – Carpet & Flooring’s most northerly base to date.

Around 40 customers attended the open day in Glasgow, and everyone had the chance to help themselves to a free breakfast, sample new products, tour the warehouse and take advantage of a number of special offers.

Grant Hamilton, Glasgow branch manager, said: “The Glasgow branch is vital to the continued growth of our operations in Scotland and we were delighted by the level of interest generated by last week’s event. The day also served as an introduction to the new management team.”

Lisa Tomlin, managing director of Carpet & Flooring, said: “We are absolutely delighted that we are now in a position to expand the business during this difficult economic time.

“Having greater physical presence and increased capacity in Scotland means we can not only work on more projects and provide a better, more streamlined service to our customers, but also look to create new jobs – something that we will be hoping to do more and more in the coming months.”

The business now has 11 active regional branches across England, Wales and Scotland, stocking and distributing products from Europe’s leading manufacturers.
