The impressive new showroom will be located at Lathams’ Thurrock site, just minutes from the M25.
Lathams introduced a range of pre-finished wood flooring across all nine of its depots seven years ago which included its now well established and highly regarded Bausen brand. However, the business has evolved and grown to a point where a centralised, specialist division is now required.
Paul Latham, who will head up the new division explained “Whilst obviously keeping abreast with the latest trends and developments in the timber and timber sheet materials business, the new flooring team will focus on wood flooring. They will be keeping up to date with the latest developments in flooring technology and products as well as with current trends and fashions so that they can provide real insight in terms of industry knowledge, delivering an unrivalled ‘added-value’ service to customers.
“The division includes a mix of both new recruits and existing members of Latham staff which offer a wealth of experience. The flooring champions at each of our depots across the group have done an excellent job in getting the flooring business to where it is today and they all deserve a lot of credit, but we have come to a point where we are now appealing to a much wider customer base and are looking to offer a more rounded and comprehensive service to architects, designers, flooring contractors and flooring retailers.”
