Awards

We’ve won over fifty carpet and flooring industry awards, including being voted “Best Carpet Manufacturer 2021” by readers of Interiors Monthly and F1 “Carpet Supplier Of The Year” for 13 consecutive years.

Interiors Monthly: Best Carpet Manufacturer 2012 to 2021

For the ninth year in succession, Cormar Carpet Company is delighted to be voted the UK’s “Best Carpet Manufacturer” by readers of Interiors Monthly.

Taking home the award again is a great privilege and we would like to say a huge thank you to all our customers, for their ongoing support over what has been a very turbulent year.

Twelve months ago, when we last lifted the award, the world was in the grip of a global pandemic, and everyone had to readjust to incorporate all the changes which COVID-19 had brought.

However, in 2021, the year in which we celebrate our 65th Birthday, we are still busy manufacturing in the UK and going from strength to strength. The fact that we own and control our own delivery fleet has enabled us to provide delivery times to our retail customers that are more certain and ensure that carpets get to retailers and contractors as quickly and efficiently as possible. Not forgetting our amazing team of people that work behind the scenes to ensure this first-class delivery service is brought to all.

In addition to the team spirit, we have continued to invest throughout the pandemic. In the last year, two new ranges have been successfully launched. The first was Inglewood Saxony, launched in the summer of 2020. The second, Woodland Heather Twist launched earlier in the spring of this year.

Another service which is thriving is Cormar’s award-winning trade portal. Launched in 2012, it is now used by over 50% of our customers and offers retailers the opportunity to place orders and check stock easily day or night 24/7. This ease of access to order processing means that you have will Cormar carpet taking pride of place in your home in no time.

Marketing Director David Cormack has said: “To be awarded the Best Carpet Manufacturer for the ninth year in a row is a huge honour for all at Cormar Carpets and is testament to the way that the team has pulled together and worked so hard throughout the past year. Over the past 65 years we have grown the brand immensely and this year, in spite of the pandemic and restrictions looks like it will be another successful one! And for that, I’d like to say a big thank you for the support our customers give us.”

Flooring Innovation Award Winner 2021

Voted for by leading trade magazine ‘The Stocklists’, Cormar has picked up an award in the Natural Category of the Flooring Innovation Awards for our Woodland Heather Twist range. This follows a run of industry wins, most recently, being voted ‘Best Carpet Manufacturer’ by readers of Interiors Monthly. The Flooring Innovation Awards recognise everything that’s new, exciting and innovative in the UK floorcoverings sector. We are extremely proud of Woodland Heather Twist and are delighted to have received this award.

Woodland Heather Twist is available in a palette of 14 beautiful shades including earthy neutrals and on-trend grey tones. We particularly love Goldcrest (shown left) which provides a bright yet natural warmth to any room. With a choice of two pile weights Elite and Deluxe, this carpet is ideal for high traffic areas in the home such as stairs and hallways.

Wool carpets are a more sustainable choice for you and your home, acting as natural insulators to create a cosy and comfortable, homely feel.  This carpet would add a touch of luxury to any room, made using tightly twisted yarn to create a hard-wearing dense pile carpet, this is the perfect choice for a family home. 

Marketing Director David Cormack comments “we’re so pleased to have won two awards this year. It’s a fantastic achievement for Cormar Carpet Company. We really do pride ourselves on continually producing new ranges, excellent product quality and first-class customer service.

CRUK Long-standing Support Award 2016

Cormar Carpets has won the ‘Longstanding Support Award’ from Carpet Recycling UK for their strong commitment to carpet recycling and sustainability.

Each year 400,000* tonnes of carpet waste is buried in UK landfill. Increasingly, businesses, householders and local authorities are looking for better alternatives for the recycling of unwanted carpet materials. Carpet Recycling UK help ensure that the growing demand for carpet recycling services is met.  Carpets are made from natural and synthetic fibres, which still have a value once the carpet is no longer wanted; they can be used in a wide range of applications from sports surfaces to insulation.

The third Carpet Recycling UK awards ceremony recently took place, recognising member organisations and individuals for particular innovation, best practice and commitment in the past year. Awards were presented by the guest host, celebrity designer Oliver Heath.

“As a leading UK Carpet Manufacturer we need to protect the environment and feel strongly that excess carpet waste should be recycled rather than end up in landfill,” said Robert Barker, finance director at Cormar Carpets. “We have been a core funder of Carpet recycling UK since 2009, and we are delighted to have won this award.”

Carpet Recycling UK is a not for profit membership association working to increase the recycling of carpet waste across the UK. *Based on the Carpet Recycling UK annual survey in 2013 which collected self-reported figures from carpet "recyclers" throughout the UK and an estimate of incineration of carpets by local authorities.
