GREAT flooring deserves perfect cleaning – and now Tarkett’s products are going under the spotlight in a new national showcase for innovative cleaning.
The company has teamed up with cleaning experts Scot Young Research (SYR) Resilient to provide all the flooring for a new test centre being built at Lye in the West Midlands.
The centre will be open to the trade by the end of April, offering demonstration facilities for technologically-advanced cleaning machinery and advanced products.
SYR Resilient manager Steve Parry said: “We’ve had a partnership with Tarkett for many years – I’ve a background in flooring myself and believe there’s no other company like them in the business.
“We appreciate the innovation that Tarkett put into all their flooring products because we are innovative ourselves.
“The centre is the first of its kind and will lead the way in cleaning research and development.”
Tarkett’s range of floor, wall and installation solutions, including Granit Safe. T, Eclipse Premium, Safetred, iQ Optima and ProtectWALL, is being installed at the centre.
Salespeople will be able to take customers to view the flooring being put to the toughest tests by SYR’s state-of-the-art machinery and cleaning solutions.
Steve Urwin, Tarkett’s UK marketing manager, said the company was delighted to be taking part in the new venture.
“Tarkett produces exceptionally hard-wearing yet attractive design led flooring.
“This means it has numerous applications, such as in hospitals and schools where extensive cleaning is crucial,” he said.
“SYR Resilient are really taking cleaning machinery and products into the 21st century, and we think the fit with Tarkett is an excellent one.
“The test centre will also be a great showcase for our existing and new flooring types, and working alongside SYR we’ll be able to use it to demonstrate the unique properties and strengths of our products to customers.”
