Wake Smith Solicitors 01 November 2019

Wake Smith Solicitors has helped a flooring specialist expand its independent business via a major £490,000 investment in a new larger premises.

All Floors UK Limited, a Pontefract family business, headed up by husband and wife team Donna and Chris Caulton, has purchased a new 11,500 sq ft unit on Langthwaite Grange Industrial Estate – not far from their current base in South Elmsall.

The new warehousing unit, formerly Whittaker Carpets, once fully refurbished, will create greater showroom, storage and office space for the successful flooring retailer which currently employs 32 staff.

Sheffield’s Wake Smith Solicitors acted for the purchasers with HSBC providing the funding.

All Floors UK Limited director Donna Caulton said: “All Floors is a family business that has gone from strength to strength. Collectively, we have more than 50 years knowledge and experience in the flooring industry and have built up an excellent reputation for service, quality workmanship and extremely competitive prices.

“Our positive experience serving residential customers has allowed us to progress onto larger projects and we have been successful in winning large commercial contracts, which has seen us outgrow our current premises and require us to operate from a larger base.

“The new unit, once substantially refurbished, will allow us to improve our residential flooring offering and satisfy new commercial work and further growth plans we have, combined with continuing our high standards of customer service.

“There could be potential jobs in the pipeline and therefore mean increasing the number of employees to 40.”

All Floors UK was founded in 2013 and sells carpets, rugs, wall and floor coverings as well as offering a full project management, supply and fitting service to both new housing developments and commercial projects.

Specialisms of the experienced fitting team include commercial and domestic carpets, sub-floor preparation; safety flooring; wetroom areas; luxury vinyl tiles, real and engineered wood floors and laminates. Qualified fitter Chris Caulton has more than 17 years fitting experience ranging from carpets to safety floors.

Donna added: “Working with Wake Smith was an excellent experience; their dedication and professionalism was second to none by delivering on all points.

“Paul Gibbon in Wake Smith’s commercial property team advised us on the purchase and we found him to be very professional, keeping us up to date and communicating well along the way.”

Paul Gibbon, director in Wake Smith's commercial property division, said: "We were really pleased to be able to advise Donna and Chris on the unit’s purchase, which is a major step forward in the firm’s development.

"We are delighted to have helped another independent Yorkshire business expand and wish them the best of luck for the future."
