Voted Best Carpet Manufacturer 2022

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

Receiving 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 the past year.

We have been manufacturing carpet in the UK for more than 65 years from our mills in Lancashire. The key to our success has been our amazing team of people that work behind the scenes to ensure a first-class delivery service to all our customers.

In addition to the team spirit, we have continued to invest over the past 12 months. In the last year, three new ranges have been successfully launched into the trade. We have expanded our family of easy clean carpets with the addition of Primo Tweeds and Linwood, followed by the introduction of Riva, a luxurious deep-pile carpet offering a balance between the practical living qualities of easy-clean polypropylene carpet and the sumptuous feeling of a soft deep carpet. This year has also seen the relaunch of our popular Apollo Plus range, now available in an extensive palette of 22 heather and plain shades.

Another service enhancement has been our award-winning Trade Portal. Since its launch in 2011, the portal has gone from strength to strength with 59% of customers now placing orders via the online service. With a host of new features introduced this year, the portal is now better than ever, making it the place to go for online trading amongst carpet retailers. In the past year, we have invested over £75,000 towards improvements; enabling customers to carry out most of their interactions with Cormar online, should they choose to do so.

This year also marks the completion of one of Cormar’s largest investments in its Backing Plant. Over £600,000 has been invested in the plant this year, as part of an overall upgrade strategy. The recent work involved the replacement of the front-end entry equipment which is 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.

Cormar has been at the forefront of carpet manufacturing for the last seven decades. Key to its success is its family business philosophy, as David Cormack, Marketing Director at Cormar said: “To be awarded the Best Carpet Manufacturer for the tenth year in a row is a huge honour for all at Cormar Carpets. This year we’ve made huge investments in the business that take us forward as a dynamic and leading-edge player in the market, so it’s great for the Cormar team to be recognised once again for the hard work and determination that they have put in.”
