New Branding, Website & Literature Marks Exciting Future For Heckmondwike FB


After outgrowing their existing offices, PSR Solutions, a recruitment company based in the Midlands and London, decided to expand and renovate a classic Georgian manor house in Stafford (Staffordshire). The refurbishment project focused on creating an engaging workspace, while keeping the original features and sympathetically restoring the property where possible. In line with this design brief, any original flooring areas that could not be salvaged, was replaced with high-quality Array carpet tiles from Heckmondwike.

“We wanted to create a bright and modern working environment, with defined walkways and interiors enhancing our company’s brand identity and ethos,” explained James Sanders, Managing Director at PSR Solutions.

In the extension part of the project, this was achieved by using hints of corporate colour-matched Array Blue carpet tiles on the floor. As for the main building, alternating Array Black, Array Marble and Array Copper carpet tiles were laid in the meeting rooms and corridors, helping to break up these areas. At the main entrance, a multi-layered effect was created using the existing flooring and newly-fitted Heckmondwike entrance carpet tiles.

Ideal for commercial office interiors, Heckmondwike carpet tiles are resistant to wear and tear, are easy to maintain, and also play a key role in creating design-led workplace environments that will benefit occupant comfort, well-being and productivity.

Nothing to be A-Frayed of with Supacord

Heckmondwike FB, one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of fibre bonded carpet, has reported an increase in demand for its renowned heavy duty Supacord range for use in educational environments.

The company attributes this rise to schools seeking carpet with anti-fraying properties.

Jeremy Broadhead, Commercial Manager for Heckmondwike FB, said: “With pressure on schools to choose durable, long lasting carpet solutions, Supacord is becoming more popular than ever. Schools and colleges have seen how some type of loop pile carpets can ravel and fray and there’s a noticeable trend towards fibre bonded carpet as it’s known for being so much more durable.”

Heckmondwike FB has supplied the education sector with Supacord for over 40 years and now the range is more comprehensive choice than ever. There are 42 shades available and the option of tile or sheet, to suit project requirements. Supacord is renowned for not ravelling or fraying, even in the most heavy-duty environments. It also provides good acoustic properties and reduced noise transmittance, which is really important in educational environments.

Like all Heckmondwike FB’s carpet, Supacord has anti-static and anti-slip properties, it also offers low maintenance. Great thermal performance is another property attributed to Supacord, which is warm and comfortable underfoot.

Schools like the fact that Supacord is available in all primary colours to match their branding or classroom themes. Supacord can also be complemented by bespoke entrance matting in Heckmondwike FB’s Diamond, with integrated logos or customised designs. This is widely used in schools to create a striking entrance area or reinforce an education establishment’s ethos.
