Cormar - The Company
Cormar - The Company
One of the success stories of the British carpet industry, Lancashire based Cormar Carpets was established in the North of England in 1956 and today ranks as one of the leading British carpet manufacturers in the UK.
Throughout the last 50 years it has placed great emphasis on quality, service and reliability and continues to invest in order to maintain and improve standards. In fact, such is the esteem in which the company is held, that it has won over thirty carpet and flooring industry awards, including being voted Best Carpet Manufacturer 2013 by readers of Interiors Monthly. In 2006 the company was named as one of the top companies to watch in the Sunday Times Top 100 independent companies in the UK.
While most carpet sold in Britain today is imported from the continent, Cormar continues to manufacture carpet at its two mills in Lancashire, working with other suppliers and partners to source quality raw materials and leading trade organisations such as Carpet Recycling UK (www.carpetrecyclinguk.com) to ensure sustainable manufacture.
Remaining as one of the few privately owned family carpet companies, Cormar's primary aim is to manufacture quality carpets and provide a first class service to all its customers. Success is based on continuous improvement in machinery and systems as well as training and investment in its loyal staff.
About Your Carpet
About Your Carpet
There is no better combination of quality, value and choice than a Cormar carpet.
A comprehensive range of easy clean polypropylene carpet, wool twist carpet, textured loop carpet in plain and heather shades are all manufactured by Cormar Carpets. Ranges are updated on a continuous basis to ensure that the colours and styles remain in tune with current home furnishing styles.
All carpets made by Cormar are manufactured on site at the two mills in Lancashire – Holme Mill and Brookhouse Mill. This enables Cormar to retain control of raw materials and quality throughout the production process. Cormar Carpets are suitable for most areas throughout the home as bedroom carpet, lounge carpet or stair carpet. They are produced in various pile weights and a wear suitability rating is provided on all carpet samples.
Only the best quality yarns in 100% pure new wool, 80% wool blends and easy clean polypropylene are used and most ranges are available in both four and five metre widths for carpeting wider rooms without joins. To ensure the best possible installation Cormar recommend using an established quality carpet shop to measure up and fit the carpet. A good quality new underlay will also maximise it's durability. Cormar Carpets are members of the Carpet Foundation and as such offer a 2 year guarantee against manufacturing fault and pile reversal, which is approved by the Trading Standards Institute.

Therefore it is recommended that carpet samples are viewed in natural daylight as well as artificial light. Please note the sampling provided should be used as a guide and not as an exact colour match. Cormar recommend that your flooring requirements are discussed with a professional carpet retailer.
