At Floor Factory, we have one of the largest showrooms in the area and pride ourselves on only having the best quality brands available in store.  As a family owned business, we offer the kind of one to one service you would expect from an independent retailer.  All our showroom staff are fully trained, many with years in the industry who are therefore very knowledgeable.  When you purchase your Woodpecker products from Floor Factory you will receive the best service possible in store, backed up with a high quality installation should you require it.  We also offer a two year installation warranty for complete peace of mind.

Meet the Team:

John Barlow | Director

After setting up and running a successful flooring company in Chesterfield for 5 years I decided to sell that business and open Floor Factory with Bronya. We opened our showroom in Derby in March 2012. Since then I’ve been pleased to see this new business grow and develop and since an expansion of the shop in 2015 we have received an overwhelming amount of positive feedback from our loyal customers. We have a small team here, so you will likely meet me at some point during your visit. We look forward to welcoming you very soon.

Bronya Barlow | Director

Apart from working with John on the general running of the business, my role within the company is mainly on the administrative side of things – invoicing, marketing, personnel, health & safety etc. Besides this, I also love getting stuck in to whatever fabulous and crazy flooring designs our customers have in mind!

Rob Durnie | Store Manager

I have worked in the retail side of the flooring industry for almost 25 years now and have been Store Manager at Floor Factory since 2013. You will usually find me on the shop floor, meeting and serving customers. As I’ve seen many changes in the flooring industry over the years and I have gathered plenty of technical product knowledge that I’m happy to pass onto you. So if you want to know more details about the products you are interested in, I look forward to helping you out.

Macey Cooling | Admin Assistant

I work part time for Floor Factory based mainly in the office. My main duties include accounting, invoicing and marketing. I love meeting customers and being able to advise on the flooring you’d like. However, I especially like my job when I get asked to keep the children occupied while their parents debate what flooring to have!

Jason Hill | Warehouse Manager

After over 20 years in the printing industry, I joined the team at Floor Factory as Warehouse Manager in 2016. You may meet me if you book a free home measure with us, as this is something either myself or John would do. Alternatively, I may deliver your goods to your home prior to installation. With my background in print I have an eye for detail, particularly with colour matching, so I am happy to help if you are stuck with finding a floor colour to match the decor in your room.

Kian Barlow | Floor Layer

After leaving school in 2017 I joined the family business as an apprentice floor layer. I have since received my diploma and NVQ. I now work full time for Floor Factory as a floor layer. I have enjoyed learning the many aspects of flooring so far and look forward to improving my skills and qualifying to an advanced level in the future.
