Initially established by Tom Cockerill in 2003, as a one man installation team The Wood Floor Company has grown year on year since its inception.
Tom originally set up the company at the tender age of 21 and worked from the boot of his car with little tools and equipment for the first year. From there the business progressed to working from storage containers in Sadberge to warehouse premises in Dalton Street, Darlington, a porta cabin on Whessoe Road, Darlington and finally coming to rest for the last 7 years in their existing 1500SQFT showroom on Whessoe Road, Darlington.
Over the past two years in particular (since its most recent showroom renovation) the company has established itself as a one stop shop for all wood flooring related products. The company supplies, fits and maintains 1000’s of sq metres of wood floors each year and prides itself on quality of service provision for each and every client that walks through the door. In 2015 the company sold its Sanding & Refurbishment division so as to allow the husband and wife team the time to strengthen the company’s retail presence.
“The popularity of our showroom on Whessoe Road has increased year on year and we have now run out of space” Says Tom Cockerill. “We will of course be leaving Whessoe Road with heavy hearts but we are both excited about what the future will bring in the new shop. We are introducing some really exciting products and some really prestigious brands and can’t wait for our customers to experience our totally unique one of a kind retail environment”
