Heckmondwike FB, one of the UK’s leading carpet manufacturers, has been shortlisted in trade magazine Tomorrow’s FM’s annual awards for its Supacord fibre bonded carpet range.

The national magazine, which is read by facilities managers across the UK, selects the top 50 companies that manufacture products and services that it feels are worthy of winning the prestigious ‘best product/service title’.

A full list of entries is released in a Guide produced by the magazine in January and readers are invited to vote online for who they believe deserves to win. Three winners then receive a trophy, which is presented in March.

Jeremy Broadhead, Commercial Manager at Heckmondwike FB, said: “We are really pleased to have been shortlisted for this prestigious award. Our Supacord range is very well established and widely specified for education and commercial projects – what really makes it stand out is the 42 different colour choices within the range. We’re really excited to see the results of the online voting!”

Rebekah Thompson, Editor of Tomorrow’s FM magazine, said: “We’d like to congratulate Heckmondwike FB for being shortlisted. We reviewed hundreds of companies’ products and services and it was an easy decision to nominate Supacord.  We wish them and all the other shortlisted companies all the best in the final voting stage.”

Used in classrooms for over 40 years, Supacord is considered the number one carpet solution for schools, colleges and universities. It has an A+ BREEAM rating, offers anti-static and anti-slip properties and a reduction in impact noise. Like all Heckmondwike FB’s products, Supacord can be cut on-site without the risk of fraying, allowing individual flooring designs to be created and installed with ease.

Heckmondwike FB carpet tiles are British-made and provide outstanding performance, as well as being backed by a 10 year limited wear warranty, which means they can be specified in complete confidence.

Supacord samples and shade cards are available on request by calling 01924 413637 or via Heckmondwike’s free online sample store.

Heckmondwike FB is entering an exciting new era with new branding, new shade cards, a new brochure and a re-designed website.

With a powerful new strapline – ‘Heckmondwike – Makers of Fibre Bonded Carpets’ – the company is demonstrating its unique heritage, celebrating 50 years of fibre bonded carpet manufacture for the education, commercial and health sectors.

Heckmondwike FB’s refreshed contemporary image reflects a new design-led approach, which is reflected in its new shade card suite and corporate marketing literature and collateral.

The company’s shade cards are extremely popular with interior designers, architects, schools and flooring contractors. Recently released are shade cards for Heckmondwike FB’s Supacord, Broadrib, Hobnail, Wellington Velour, Iron Duke and Entrance ranges. All ranges have been used extensively across educational settings and other environments for over 50 years and their exciting new look will make it even easier for contractors, specifiers and end-users to select the correct carpet to suit their needs.

A new 20 page brochure presents the revitalised Fibre Bonded and Entrance ranges, clearly demonstrating the company’s comprehensive choice of colours and designs.
In addition to the new literature, there are a number of colours that have been added to Heckmondwike FB’s Hobnail, Iron Duke and Wellington ranges, to make them even more versatile for use in different environments and sectors.

The new website, which is due for launch in October, has been designed with a new contemporary and uncluttered look. The website features all Heckmondwike FB’s ranges, with high quality installation and product photography, plus NBS specifications, BIM models, downloadable literature, notable case studies and installation and maintenance advice.

Jeremy Broadhead, Commercial Manager at Heckmondwike FB, said: “We are really excited to be launching our new identity and support literature and website. Design is becoming increasingly important in the choice of carpet, rather than it being a purely functional purchase and this is reflected in our literature and in our extended choice of colours in certain ranges. With our new website, brochure and shade cards, we are making it even easier for the specifier or buyer to make the right choice for them.”

Heckmondwike’s Fibre Bonded carpets are renowned for their durability, but also for their low maintenance properties and the fact that they will not ravel or fray – great in high-traffic areas. The company’s carpet is widely specified for education, public sector and commercial environments.
