Cormar Hosts Flooring Guild Training Course
Leading carpet manufacturer Cormar Carpets held its seventh annual Flooring Guild training course to provide those starting out in carpet retailing with a valuable insight into the industry.
Twenty two carpet retailers attended the three-day ‘Selling Quality Carpets’ event at Cormar’s Brookhouse Mill, run by independent industry expert and course tutor Ray Morgan from the Flooring Guild.
The course gives independent carpet retailers a chance to enhance their sales skills and provides basic product knowledge about carpets, carpet care and how to effectively plan and estimate.
David Cormack, marketing director of Cormar Carpets said: “Having run this carpet course for a number of years now, it’s great to know that it is still in demand, and that the positive feedback we receive, reinforces the fact that it really does make a difference to those retailers that attend.”
The Flooring Guild is a ‘not for profit’ organisation, which was founded in 1999 to raise standards in the flooring industry through training and educational programmes. The organisation aims to provide a formal induction programme to assist people coming into the industry and a skills development programme, to motivate current employees.
The Avebury wool loop pile carpet collection has been updated with a new textured design, new colours and a selection of complementary stripes.
Cormar Carpets indulges the senses by introducing Soft Focus, its new super-soft, luxurious easy clean carpet collection.
With visitor numbers up by over 9% from last year, the Cormar Carpets stand was bustling with retailers keen to view the latest carpet collections.
For the fourth time in succession, Cormar Carpets has been voted Best Carpet Manufacturer by readers of the trade publication Interiors Monthly.
Cormar Carpets has won the ‘Longstanding Support Award’ from Carpet Recycling UK for their strong commitment to carpet recycling and sustainability.
