As one of the UK’s leading commercial carpet and carpet tile companies, Heckmondwike FB has a long history of producing and manufacturing products in the UK – a legacy that continues to the present day.
All of Heckmondwike FB’s commercial carpets and carpet tiles are made in Britain, at the company’s facility in Liversedge, West Yorkshire.
This includes Heckmondwike FB’s most widely recognised and specified product, Supacord – perfect for the education section, with over 40 years delivering results in schools, colleges and universities across the country.
Primarily, the company manufactures products for stock throughout the year to successfully manage customer demand and to ensure supply is guaranteed in short delivery windows.
This is of particular benefit in the lead up to the peak summer months when carpet and carpet tiles are required for fit-outs in the education industry.
Alongside its manufacturing and production processes, as a company that is proud of its British manufacturing heritage, Heckmondwike FB strives to work closely with UK based suppliers throughout its supply chain, where possible.
Due to the UK’s current political situation (at the time of publishing), the company has been asked how changes in the political climate will impact supply to customers.
Although one of the main certainties of Brexit is in its uncertainty, the company would like to inform its customers, whether they are end-users, specifiers, architects/developers or flooring contractors, that Heckmondwike FB envisages no significant issues over the coming months when it comes to supplying products to UK-based customers.
If you would like to find out more about what the company is doing to ensure orders are completed or to answer any questions, please contact your local area manager, a list of which can be found here.

Heckmondwike, one of the UK’s leading fibre bonded carpet and carpet tile manufacturers, has launched a new RIBA approved Continual Professional Development (CPD) seminar for specifiers, architects and other construction professionals.
The CPD seminar, ‘what to consider when specifying fibre bonded carpets’, is included on RIBA’s core curriculum under Design, Construction and Technology, with a General Awareness knowledge level. It will provide participants with the necessary information and essential regulatory requirements for correctly specifying and installing fibre bonded contract flooring.
Each session will cover the key factors that should be taken into consideration when specifying the right commercial carpet for a specific environment. This includes how fibre bonded carpets meet contract flooring requirements, the differences between sheet products, carpet tiles and carpet planks and their installation and maintenance.
In addition, participants will also gain a better understanding of the manufacturing processes, how to identify whether a fibre bonded product is fit for purpose, and how floorcoverings can meet health, safety and environmental standards.
Bob Mortimer, National Sales Manager for Heckmondwike, said: “Our new CPD seminar is designed to help construction professionals gain an even better understanding of fibre bonded floorcoverings. In addition, it will showcase how this type of carpet offers performance and aesthetic benefits for a wide range of commercial and education settings. We’re confident that the sessions will be of great value to everyone that attends.”
Heckmondwike products are made in the UK 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.
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, which is ideal for high-traffic areas.
