Cormar Opens New Holme Mill Extension

Award-winning UK carpet manufacturer Cormar Carpets has expanded its Ramsbottom-based Holme Mill site in a move to further improve stock availability and service to customers.

Representing a £900,000 investment, the new warehousing space to increase the storage area for un-backed carpet was commenced earlier this year and was opened by Cormar Carpet’s Chairman Betty Cormack over the summer.


A small opening ceremony was held at Holme Mill attended by Cormar’s Holme Mill staff and the construction team. A ribbon was cut by Mrs Cormack after which the first roll of carpet was loaded into a decker.


The new warehouse features cutting edge construction technology with state-of-the-art electrics and fittings and gives 41,744 sq ft of new floor space with racking space for up to 791 unbacked rolls (or 300,000 sq m of carpet). There is also the option to double stockholding capacity in the future. 


Said Paul Murphy, Cormar Carpet’s production manager: “The extension is another significant step in future proofing our operations, ensuring we continue to efficiently handle the high volume growth levels we’ve enjoyed in the last few years. It puts us in a better position to drive improvements in service to our customers.”


All Cormar tufted carpet ranges are manufactured in the UK on site at its Lancashire mills and distributed to carpet shops throughout Britain and Ireland via its own delivery fleet. Order your free carpet samples today to find your perfect new carpet.
