 Vibrant Van Gogh
 Ryalux has launched the second phase of its artist collection with the
 introduction of Ryatwist, inspired by Dutch icon,Vincent Van Gogh.The new
 Ryatwist colour collection is made from 80 percent New Zealand Wool
 blended with 20 per cent nylon and offers four distinctive hard wearing
 twist qualities. The range includes, Standard, Contract, Super 50 and Super
 65 with all four twists available in any width up to seven metres
  The Van Gogh inspired colours have influenced this new Ryatwist
 collection which displays a selection of 120 colours including vibrant shades
 such as chocolate, grey and red.These colours reflect customers’ demand
 for carpet shades far from traditional beiges. Plus, if a customer can’t find
 their preferred colour choice they can always make use of Ryalux's any
 colour match option.
 To re-launch the Ryatwist collection, Ryalux have updated their traditional
 red pattern books which clearly identify the benefits of being able to supply
 carpet in any width up to seven metres wide and the colour matching
 service. In support of their extra -wide service, Ryalux has strengthened its
 dedicated delivery fleet and also offers retailers the option to have extra-
 wide carpets delivered directly to the customer on their behalf.

Afford ye go!
Misty glens, mysterious lochs, ancient castles and the drift of snow across pillows of heather,
Scotland proudly stands for individuality, integrity and artistic bravado. After all what other nation
could persuade blokes to wear skirts in arctic conditions?
Three new additions to the Bond Worth tartan range are introduced this season; all based on
traditional Scottish tartans. With an eye to that Scottish penchant for quality coupled with value for
money, the specification in hardy 80% wool 20% nylon is reinforced by a superior 8 row construction.
The Scots Guards playing ‘Scotland the Brave’ could march all over these carpets and still have time
for encores’ before it flattened.
If you’re a retailer tilling the ’retail’ soil in Scotland, looking for an edge and eager to prove the old
saying about Scottish thrift misplaced then look no further than Logan, Bannockbane and Holyrood.




Parador boosted by building brand
German wood, parquet and laminates major Parador report record turnover of
€ 177 million and 9 percent growth in a market they descibed as “tense” in
2007.The performance was seen as especially successful against a backdrop of
raw material rises and stagnation in construction.
The UK is a major market which delivered good results for the
company which has experience tightening domestic market
conditions in its domestic markets of Germany and Austria.
Parador has set out to achieve brand leadership in terms of
design and technology and in a statement, the company said: “ As
in other consumer areas buying trends reflect the increasing
significance of brands – for floor coverings too.The ‘cheap’ motto
has lost its relevance. Quality consciousness and the return to
real values helped the Parador brand to a year of great
accomplishment.”
Building for the future, Parador has invested heavily in marketing
to build its brand with a communication budget of 4.5% of
turnover while its annual production capacity has been extended
to 2.6 million m2 following a € 9.2 million expansion of its Güssing
plant in Germany (pictured right).

     Practical elegance
     Carpet manufacturer Whitestone Weavers has gone for
        an Italian job with the launch of a new carpet range.
             The new Verona range has been inspired by the
      traditional architecture and masonry of Northern Italy
           and is a traditionally woven Axminster that will be
        available in eight mineral colourways: sardonyx, opal,
       moonstone, soapstone, araqonite, marble, granite and
       quartz. The combination of a scroll motif pattern and
          natural background textures enhance classic styled
           interiors, as well as bringing warmth and comfort.
       The practical, yet elegant, range is a high performance
           blend of 80% wool and 20% polyamide, giving it a
      luxurious look and feel. Available in a width of 3.66m,
             the carpet is suitable for installation in almost all
       locations throughout the home and most commercial
                                                   environments.
         Steve Byrne, managing director at Whitestone says:
       “The Verona is a very elegant range, suitable for both
       extra heavy domestic and heavy contract installations
                  and can be used in both a traditional and
                                      contemporary setting.

         Sonic sounds solid
            Sonic Gold Excel is a completely new high performance underlay for
              laminate, solid wood and engineered floors, both for domestic and
                                                         workplace applications.
            This extremely durable underlay is a three layer lamination based on
           the well proven Novostrat high density polyethylene foam, as used in
           other underlays in the Sonic range, which is the key to its exceptional
                  sound absorption performance qualities and impact resistance.
              The floor-side lamination is an effective 100mu LDPE black vapour
          control layer and the top lamination is a gold foil facing which extends
         to form a 200mm overlap, on both sides, to avoid any possible acoustic
             bridging and to facilitate perfect continuity in installation. The higher
                  density polyethylene foam also goes a long way to evening out
                     imperfections in the deck on to which the floor is to be laid.
                 The company’s market strategy is to produce the highest quality
         products at the most competitive of prices. Sonic Gold Excel may be a
           ‘top end’ performance product but, in Novostrat’s words, it is still one
                                                      of the most cost-efficient.

Packexe is film star!
     With a growing National and European
  distributor base, continual media coverage
      on National Television on popular DIY
  programmes such as 60 Minute Makeover,
  Packexe is the leading name in temporary
                floor and surface protection.
 Packexe Self-Adhesive Protection Film is an
   important commodity during any stage of
    the construction process from early build
  through to fit out and decoration. Packexe
           film protects any floor and surface
          demonstrating its many benefits to
                         thousands of people.
     Strong product placement has built the
  recognition of the Packexe brand, ensuring
       its traceability, consistency and quality
           assurance. Without clear branding,
          consumers continue to lack trust in
 products especially when there is increased
               risk of user error and damage.
  In 2007 alone Packexe achieved over 600
    hours of prime time television and 2008
looks to be even better as filming continues
       and new programmes using Packexe
            Protection film wait to be aired.

       Century of success at the family firm
       Manufacturer of fine quality woven and tufted carpets, Devon-based Axminster Carpets has
       been run by the same family for over 70 years. Now with the appointment of Josh Dutfield
       to Managing Director, the family-run company is set fair to pass the century mark under the
       watchful eye of a fourth generation of family leadership.
       Harry Dutfield CBE began the present Axminster Carpets in 1937, with help from his father
       John Dutfield, and since then the company has been supplying homeowners, retailers and
       contract installations world-wide with the finest quality carpets.
       For the last 42 years, Axminster has been producing carpets under the guidance of Harry’s
       son, Simon, and now with the appointment of Josh, Simon will pass on his experience and
       knowledge ensuring that every treasured aspect of the company is passed seamlessly on to
       the next generation.
       Commenting on Josh’s new role, Simon Dutfield observes: “The success and reputation of
       Axminster Carpets has always been founded upon its family history and I am delighted and
       very proud that my son will continue this for a fourth generation.
       My grandfather started his career as a wilton designer for Templetons. He moved back to Kidderminster as Head Designer for Carpets of
       Worth before joining my father here at Axminster. My father founded Axminster Carpets on the basis of traditional values and this is
       something that will never change. Quality carpet and impeccable service are the building blocks of our success and this has always been at
       the forefront of our ambition. Working alongside me, Josh will learn more over time and I am confident that his dedication and enthusiasm
       for the family business will be exemplified in the continuing success of Axminster Carpets. There are exciting but tough challenges ahead and
       for a family run business to succeed in a world of Plc’s we must maintain family values for the benefit of our customers and our employees.”




                    £6m budget to boost UK carpet sales
                    The industry’s biggest-ever campaign to boost sales of broadloom carpets is to be launched in September with a £6 million
                    budget. Carpetright and Headlam Group are key players with Balta’s Group’s Geert Vanden Bossche heading the marketing
                    initiative.
                    “This is a very important step forward and is a joint effort by UK and European manufacturers’, Mr Vanden Bossche told The
                    Stocklists. “We believe there is a move back towards carpet and we want people to keep their attention on broadloom
                    carpet.
                    “It will be a positive campaign, selling the carpet benefits of comfort, colour and ease of installation”, he added. “We also
                    want people to change their carpets more frequently”.
                    Rumours of a major marketing initiative have been circulating in the trade for months and was being discussed at Domotex
                    but the participation in the project has been a well guarded secret.
                    Details of all the companies involved will not be released until the end of April as discussions are still going on but the
                    organisers say that up to 15 companies will be contributing including “several” UK players.
                    A company called Carpet Campaign (UK) Ltd has been established and it is understood that the first contribution to the
                    campaign fund has already been paid by the participants.
                    The £6m budget is set for a two-year “robust and durable” campaign which will cover the full marketing mix across
                    consumer print, online, outdoor and television advertising plus a highly active PR campaign.The Engine Group, a London-
                    based marketing agency has been appointed to handle the account.
                    The campaign team is set to start work this month on themes and creative approaches and the involvement and support of
                    independent retailers is yet to be decided.
                    “We will measure the impact of the campaign as much as possible and we want to see the figures going up,” said Mr Vanden
                    Bossche. Perception surveys before, during and after the campaign will help assess the return on investment for
                    manufacturers.
                    Carpet Campaign (UK) is a separate initiative to the Carpet Foundation which is backed by 11 leading UK companies and
                    has over 1000 retailers registered as Specialist Retailers trading under the new Office of Fair Trading Consumer Code of
                    Practice.The Foundation is running a Spring Campaign in home interest magazines reaching more than nine million readers.

Fine spray is faster from Floorwise




Spray adhesives are a feature of every installer’s tool bag and these humble
cans are called upon on a daily basis to empty their contents onto a variety of
subfloors to help stick down everything from underlay to vinyl, PU-backed
carpet, carpet tiles and cork. But there is one can that is not so humble and
outstrips its competitors, Floorwise’s F599 Spray Adhesive.
As any good chemist will tell you, the difference is in the composition. And the
F599 composition gives F599 a higher adhesives content than spray adhesives
from leading manufacturers and the results of this are two fold.
With a higher adhesives content, F599 has less solvent to evaporate and so
dries in less than half the time of other products. In the summer months, F599
takes just 30 seconds to develop tack allowing far quicker installation. And in
the winter comparable performance is even better, with F599 taking just one-
minute to dry while other spray adhesives can take five or more to achieve
the same state.
More adhesive in the can, means more adhesive and so F599 goes down
thicker than the competition creating a higher coat weight on the subfloor.The
result is that F599 creates a stronger bond, giving more peace of mind and
allowing installers to work without worry.
Floorwise hasn’t just thought about what is in the can, it has also thought
about how it comes out. Cans of F599 are equipped with the latest in nozzle
technology, allowing both the flow and direction of adhesive to be controlled
by the installer.This helps to reduce the chance of overspray onto walls and
skirtings making for a cleaner and quicker job.
With a coverage rate of 3m2 from a 500ml can on a single, smooth and non-
porous surface, F599 is perfect for small rooms and those little finishing jobs
and with no CFC propellants it will not damage the ozone layer. F599 Spray
Adhesive can be used to adhere foam-backed and polyurethane-backed
carpets, carpet tiles, cork, paper felt, underlays and felts to wood, concrete,
stone, terrazzo and quarry tile floors.

       Ulster’s Hard Days Night
       One of Ulster Carpets’ most recent projects is set to
       become part of a worldwide phenomena. Twenty
       years after conception, Hard Days Night in Liverpool
       has opened its doors as a Beatles themed hotel,
       named after the second movie the world famous
       group starred in.
       Situated in the 'Beatles Quarter' of Liverpool city
       and adjacent to the Cavern Club where the group
       first rose to fame, the Hotel is a 'Grade II' listed
       building dating back to 1884.
       Helping to create a unique, yet tasteful Beatles
       themed environment pitched at the luxury end of
       the hotel market, Ulster Carpets in conjunction with
       Design LSM created a series of designs to
       complement the décor and the specially
       commissioned artwork that depicts the story of
       the Beatles.

                                           retailer promotion
  As lighter nights and brighter days approach, we are introducing our latest British Wool
retailer promotion. The finish of the British Wool/Farm Stay UK prize draw at the end of
      February – winners to be announced in next month’s issue - provided real food for
                                                 thought for the BWMB marketing team.
   “We had produced a very nice promotional pack for the Autumn retailer promotion,”
    said Irfan Khan, promotions manager for the BWMB. “The desktop leaflet dispenser is
 already in the hands of over 200 retailers and we wanted to give it a future use. So we
        discussed ideas with a few people in the trade and found out what they liked and
                                               wanted in terms of British Wool literature.”
    The general consensus was that people like to know a little more about the wool and
also to know about the chain of activity from field to floor. Sheep images also seemed to
         be popular – with some retailers commenting that British breeds and origin were
                                                       increasingly attractive to consumers.
 “At British Wool we have a wealth of material about sheep, sheep farmers, the textile
      industry and carpet but nothing captured the right balance of wool/sheep/carpet
    information that they were asking for. So we have created our new info-brochure
              especially for the retailer, which is going to be a great promotional tool,”
                                                                            said Mr Khan.
 The leaflet will initially be sent to all retailers that participated in the Autumn promotion
        but if this proves successful, may be rolled out to other retailers later in the year.
“We have had some superb support from the retail network and it is brilliant when they
    participate in our promotions. The intention is to keep building this relationship with
Spring and Autumn promotions with either a point of sale or incentive based campaign. “
