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.
Paul Murphy, Cormar Carpet’s production manager said, “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.”
