Many know us principally as a supplier of quality interiors – but we are much more than just a supplier. Coming from a background of carpet fitting, we understand the business literally from the ground up. That means not only do we understand the fitting process – our understanding of the products is second to none.
This has stood us in good stead. We can draw on over 30 years experience in the field, and now boast a wealth of commercial clients in addition to domestic customers. In terms of volume, we are the biggest carpet company in the region, and can use that buying power to pass savings onto all our customers.
Recently, we decided to take this a step further, raising the bar in the industry – and for customers. “The general image of carpet fitters across the country is not that good,” says Paul. “We wanted to do something about that.”
In April 2015, Ray & Paul initiated a fast-track apprentice scheme for fitters, with a view to taking on 20 apprentices by Christmas 2015. “They’ll all be our own employees, in branded vans, in uniform, and more importantly, they’ll have our attitude – valuing the customers and doing what we know is right.”
Within 12 months of training, they’ll be out fitting carpet properly – an assurance of quality, and an investment in the future.
