Jack Carmichael (Flooring) Ltd
This third generation family business was established in Elgin almost 50 years ago by the present owner’s grandfather, Jack Carmichael.
The business then concentrated on domestic flooring, china and drapery. In 1976 Jack’s son Brian took over the business and developed the commercial side. Due to the success of this the retail aspect of the business moved away from flooring and moved to a smaller shop while the flooring business continued to trade from it’s store at Pinefield in Elgin.
The business was primarily concentrating on commercial contracts and creating a valuable reputation for quality workmanship and completion of large and small contracts within the tight timescales imposed in the construction industry.
Brian also steered the company to become members of the Contract Flooring Association which has helped in the development of the company. Due to the sudden death of his father Brian in 1995, Neil Carmichael was left at the age of 18 to run the business on his own. He has successfully developed the customer base to include domestic as well as commercial clients. He ensures the business works closely with suppliers and holds ‘key contractor’ or ‘recommended contractor’ status with all major flooring manufacturers; Amtico, Spacia, Brintons, Ryalux and Ulster.
