A major UK flooring contractor has made its first foray into East Anglia.
Designer Contracts, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, has chosen Norwich as the home for its first facility in the region.
The outlet on the Union Park Industrial Estate is one of three new openings by the company in 2018, along with new premises in Leeds and Ashford, Kent.
The openings, which bring Designer Contracts’ total number of outlets to 15, are part of a five-year plan to double its workforce from 300 to 600 and increase annual turnover to £80m.
Peter Kelsey, managing director of Designer Contracts, said: “I’m delighted that we now have an East Anglian-based outlet which we have opened to meet increased demand for our services in the region.
“Strategically Norwich was a great choice for us, the location allowing us easier access to customers throughout the area and beyond.”
