Carpet & floor covering specialists
It was 1988 when I was marched to the careers office and told to pick an apprenticeship and knuckle down.
In these early years the family firm that employed me along with their master fitters and Kidderminster carpet college helped to instil the traditions and skills needed to become a fully fledged fitter in all aspects of the trade.
A few years after completing my apprenticeship I spent time on the road eventually settling on the northern beaches of Sydney Australia where I managed a small team of fitters in the luxury end of the Sydney market.
The positive, no worries approach the team had whilst dealing in the most demanding market truly had an effect which still resonates in Ocean Flooring.
Several years later and back in the uk people were asking me to do more and more private work in the evenings and weekends. So with a growing reputation Ocean Flooring was created. By fusing my traditional background with what I’d learnt overseas we were able to create a company that’s truly unique. I believed and still do that our hands on experience gives us a real insight into products that can’t be learnt in a showroom.
These days Ocean Flooring are grateful to have a whole wealth of clients including first time buyers on a budget, home builders, designers, Rock Stars and hopefully YOU!
I hoped if we concentrated on being the best and not the biggest the rest would fall into place and fingers crossed it seems to be working.
