Cormar Invests in Backing Plant

Award winning carpet manufacturer, Cormar Carpets, are proud to have committed to one of the largest investments in its Backing Plant in recent times, improving both quality and service, solidifying Cormar’s position as a market leader.

An investment of £600,000 has been made to the plant, based in Lancashire, as part of an overall upgrade strategy. The recent work involved the replacement of the front-end entry equipment which includes the J-box and cleaning unit, a new vertical steamer, weft straightener and latex mixer. All of which are responsible for preparing unbacked rolls prior to latex application.

Taking 12 months to complete, the Backing Plant is now benefitting from improvements in runnability and quality - as well as a cleaner, more modern looking plant.

Adrian Knott, Cormar’s Backing Plant manager said “The overall aim of the project was to improve the resilience and reliability of the Backing Plant whilst at the same time improving quality and service. We are pleased to report that this has been a success, and this is testimony to the amazing effort from everyone involved.”

The recent investment highlights Cormar’s commitment to continually improving the business, in order to improve productivity and customer satisfaction, and build upon its award-winning service and product offering.
