Who we are

Pennine Flooring Supplies Limited are a leading, independent flooring distributor that started life in Lancashire and subsequently opened branches in Cumbria and Cheshire. Established for over 45 years, we supply the full spectrum of flooring products to the trade throughout all regions of Northern England, North Wales, Isle of Man and South West Scotland. We have everything you need for your commercial and domestic flooring projects. It’s all available for delivery or collection, Monday to Friday.

Why us?

We pride ourselves on offering a service we believe is second to none. We provide an excellent delivery service throughout a vast area from our three branches on our fleet of trucks and vans. We have built up secure relationships with key customers over the years who depend on the service we provide. We still believe in the old traditions of offering a friendly and personal service but can offer the full support needed on the larger projects that require specific site deliveries.
Our customers are supported by dedicated sales teams at each branch, with five field sales representatives offering that personal point of contact.

Our History

Pennine Flooring Supplies was set up in 1976 by Doctor Tony Gladstone and originally traded as Northern Cork Supplies with its own retail outlet on Rooley Moor Road in Rochdale. Northern Cork offered all forms of cork – rolls, sheets, wall and floor tiles,
In 1986 Northern Cork expanded by opening a depot in the heart of the Lake District in Kendal. Shortly afterwards the company’s name changed to Pennine Flooring Supplies to reflect the greater variety of products the company was now offering.
Bigger, newer premises were bought in Heywood in 1990, our head office and main warehousing facility, shortly followed by a depot in Carlisle that took over the business from the Kendal address.
The next major step for the company came in July 2004 with the purchase of Panhurst Ltd, a small, family run distributor based on the outskirts of Chester. This gave Pennine Flooring a much greater penetration into the flooring markets in Cheshire, Shropshire and North Wales.
In 2011 the Chester branch moved to larger premises in Sandycroft, followed by the Carlisle branch moving to a brand new, brighter & more spacious premises in Kingmoor Park Central in 2019. Finally, the head office in Heywood moved from their cramped warehouse at Phoenix Close to a 28,000sqft warehouse that was totally refurbished in 2021.

Our Network

In addition to our three depots, Pennine is part of the Brookvale Group. With other distributors based in North and South London, two in Glasgow, Farnham, Brighton and Bracknell. We also have a specialist distributor of carpet tiles in The Floor Hub and a premium quality hardwood floorings importer/distributor and accessories in Heritage Woodcraft who are based in Hinckley.
