The Company sources an extensive range of floorcovering products including carpet, residential vinyl, wood, laminate, luxury vinyl tile, underlay and commercial flooring from suppliers across 16 countries covering a wide price range. In 2016, the Company purchased from 107 significant suppliers.
In 2016, 77.56% of products for the commercial sector were purchased from suppliers in the UK, whereas the UK only accounted for 14.61% in the residential sector.*
Suppliers benefit by gaining via the Company the greatest coverage and customer penetration for their products across the UK and Continental Europe. The Company also works in conjunction with the suppliers to tailor their product lines, launch new products and increase awareness of their products amongst customers primarily through point of sale (‘POS’) materials and positioning POS displays in the customer’s premises.
Through increasing revenues, the Company and its businesses are able to benefit from purchasing economies of scale with suppliers.
