Our Story

Ever wondered how we came to be? Well ponder no more because here's our story (so far...)
FloorsUK always has and always will be a family-run business. Even our brand has a sibling. That's right, FloorsUK is the sister company to DCTUK - our very own hive of discount carpet tile activity. We run both operations from the lovely land of Liverpool but are super proud to be providing commercial and residential customers from every nook and cranny of the country with the floors of their dreams. From teeny tiny ensuite bathrooms, to huge international tenders, we're doing our thing and doing it with a whole lot o' dedication to you.

A history in cotton trading

Once the busiest port in the whole world, Liverpool used to be right at the very centre of international yarn trading and that's where it's rich tapestry of heritage comes from. Traders would meet at the Cotton Exchange building in the city centre (where our HQ is now based!) and make telephone calls all the way to New York, Bremen and Bombay. Heaven help the bill payer.

Technology has come on leaps and bounds since then though and most of our yarns are now manufactured using swanky synthetic material and fancy machinery to make sure you get the most bang for your buck. However we're suckers for tradition and like to protect our history so there are still a handful of cotton and wool based carpet tiles available over on the DCTUK site.


The start of something extraordinary

Once upon a time, way back in 2007, our Managing Director, Dean had a lightbulb moment while kicking back on the couch in his living room and it was that very moment that it all began. Thanks to the help of his lovely wife, Jess (who now looks after their 4 even more lovely children), we received our very first order in the Summer of that year and well, the rest is history but let us fill in some of the most memorable gaps for you.

Welcome some very important people

By 2009, after Dean and co. continued to work their little socks off, it wasn’t long before prestigious organisation Aspire Defence came on board and we started supporting military bases around the UK by providing them with quality flooring solutions for their barracks and soldier accommodation. By 2012 we were also proudly working with the marvellous Cancer Research UK after securing a national contract for their UK stores.

A brand new base in Burscough

Up until October 2013, DCTUK HQ was located in the little Merseyside town of Formby - home of the red squirrel and some beautiful beaches - but world domination was creeping closer so we decided to expand our operations into a swanky new warehouse in Burscough. Here we have been sitting pretty on the Liverpool-Leeds canal, enjoying the view and building up a strong base of loyal clients and acclaimed suppliers through providing premium products at discount prices.

Say hello to some more DCTUK VIP's

We hit the ground running as 2014 came around and in September we were lucky enough to add Eddie Stobart (the UK’s largest haulage company) to our growing portfolio as we supplied carpet tiles for for depots and warehouse offices. As winter approached, we certainly didn’t lose steam and before the year was out, we had fulfilled (supplied and fitted) a prolific flooring project brief for the famous Manchester Airport Concorde Hangar.

Make way for FloorsUK

After a bloomin’ fantastic 2014, we continued into 2015 on a high as we launched our own sister company in March. FloorsUK has fast become a go-to brand for high quality flooring solutions that delivers premium products without the premium price tag. We might be a little bit biased but our ever-expanding team of employees, suppliers and customers tells us we’re definitely doing something right.

March 2015

In our (new) Liverpool home

As much as we love our picturesque Burscough base, we decided that it was high time DCT experienced the big bright lights of the city so in November 2015, we signed on the dotted line for a brand new office in Liverpool’s Cotton Exchange. Once home to the city’s historical booming cotton trade, it’s a match made in heaven as we continue to please customers with our modern wool-based carpet tiles. We will still be keeping hold the DCTUK warehouse too - you aren’t getting rid of us that easily, Burscough!
