Independent wholesaler, STS Flooring Distributors, has become a member of the floorwise group.
Says the company: ‘With access to the quality and value of exclusive products, floorwise independent distributors are relied on by retailers and installers for excellence in product and service across the UK and Ireland. The network has now become stronger with the announcement that STS Flooring Distributors has become a floorwise group member with immediate effect.’
STS Flooring Distributors was established in 1965 in Orpington, Kent where its head office remains. Through an MBO in 2008 where Ray Colgate and Stuart Gray acquired controlling interest, it has remained independent. Today, STS Flooring Distributors has depots in Orpington, Basildon, Croydon, Hemel Hempstead, and Cambridge.
STS Flooring Distributors says it brings strengthened coverage to floorwise, ensuring installers, retailers and contractors throughout the home counties, London and East Anglia can access floorwise products within easy reach. ‘With a dedicated fleet of vehicles, the wholesaler is renowned for providing excellent service to the retail and commercial flooring markets.’
Ray Colgate of STS Flooring Distributors says: ‘We believe the floorwise group shares many of our values, such as a commitment to quality and value and delivering the very best in service to customers. With products that are trusted and relied on retailers, installers, and contractors, the floorwise group is one we’re proud to be playing a part in.’
Richard Bailey, managing director, floorwise says: ‘As a group of independent wholesalers and distributors, our operational model allows us to develop problem solving products in a broad range of categories, while retaining the high-quality service that comes from independence. Welcoming STS Flooring Distributors to the floorwise family strengthens this approach and ensures we can supply even more industry colleagues with the best in quality and value.’
STS Flooring Distributors says it’ll soon be stocking floorwise products at all depots.
