Derbyshire based firm, Flooring Direct founded by Mark Andrew in 2013 is the new tenant entering into a long-term lease with PMW Property at Premier Park, Branston Industrial Estate. The 85,000 sq.ft unit will be the new base for Flooring Direct, who has expanded from the local village of Hollington, Derbyshire. The company is a proud carpet and flooring specialist who thrive on providing customers with a large range of flooring services. The premises provide extensive office space, warehouse, mezzanine facilities and a gatehouse within a prominent location, adjacent to the A38. It is a fantastic secure site with the benefits of intercom access and a security barrier together with an adjoining security gatehouse. Phil Randle from Salloway Property Consultants was the agent for this transaction along with Matthew Wrigley of PMW Property and together achieved a very successful outcome.

Mark Andrew of Flooring Direct quotes: – “My team and I, have quickly scaled the business to £15m turnover selling direct to consumers online and with our expansion to the PMW Property site at Premier Park, we aim to grow to over £30m turnover. In an increasingly challenging retail environment, we have established an agile operating model, capitalising on the consumer shift towards e-commerce for home improvement products. This exciting move will enable Flooring Direct to increase its stock holding and create an in-house national distribution and delivery network, so the business is able to deliver its entire product range to 99% of UK postcodes within 48 hours with a 2-hour delivery window, taking full control of the end-to-end customer experience and providing market leading levels of service. Our aim has always been to transform the flooring industry and become a market leader. With this move we are confident we have the space and ability to do exactly that.”

Phil Randle of Salloway Property Consultants quotes: – “Great to see a rapidly expanding business relocate to Burton on Trent and the economic benefits that brings to the area. The premises provide not only warehousing but also office and showroom facilities in an excellent location fronting the A38.”

Matthew Wrigley of PMW Property quotes: – “It is with great pleasure that we welcome our new tenant, Mark Andrew of Flooring Direct to our site at Premier Park, Branston Industrial Estate, one of the sites in our vast portfolio of property across Derbyshire and Staffordshire. We hope Mark and his team enjoy every success and continue to prosper in their business venture with us.”
