Who we are

Pennine Flooring Supplies Limited a leading, independent flooring distributor that started life in Lancashire and subsequently opened branches in Cumbria and Cheshire. Established for over 40 years, we supply the full spectrum of flooring products to the trade throughout all regions of Northern England, North Wales, Isle of Man and Dumfriesshire. We have everything you need for your commercial and domestic flooring projects, and it’s all available for delivery, Monday to Friday.

Why us?

We pride ourselves on offering a service that we believe is second to none. We offer an excellent deliver service throughout a vast area from our three branches on our own 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 condition deliveries

Our customers are supported by dedicated sales teams at each branch with four field sales representatives offering that personal point of contact.

Our History

Pennine Flooring Supplies was set up in 1985 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 1985 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 in the outskirts of Chester. This gave Pennine Flooring a much greater penetration into the flooring markets in Cheshire, Wirral 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. 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.
