Jonathan attended the opening of the £3 million V4 Wood Flooring design centre.
The innovative and exciting ‘V4 World’ design centre will allow the company to showcase its luxury flooring products and wall panels to customers, architects, specifiers and designers in settings that demonstrate how the products can give homes the wow-factor.
The company, a Woking success story, which currently has a turnover circa £12million, is targeting growth to £20million over the next three years.
The business has ambitious plans to open a showroom in Clerkenwell, which is renowned for being the home of trendy design centres, followed by a centre in the North of England, with Manchester an option under consideration.
The new centres will support the dealer network with a wider range of large samples for customers to view and product training facilities, including the fitting of the various floor and wall products.
Investment is also being made to upgrade the ordering process for its network of retailers, offering 24-hour online ordering with instant access to stock levels and new products are planned for launch during 2019.
