Nottingham business T&R Floor Covering Distributors Limited, one of the UK’s leading floor covering distributors, has been sold to TradeChoice Carpet & Flooring in a deal advised by PKF Smith Cooper.

Our client

T&R Floor Covering Distributors Limited was a family-run, independent business situated in the Midlands with over 35 years’ experience in the carpet and flooring industry. The company prided itself on offering “all your flooring needs under one roof” and boasted a two-day turnaround (or faster by request) on delivery.

How we helped

David Crump, Corporate Finance Director at PKF Smith Cooper, led the advisory team on the deal.

What our client had to say

Malcolm Trott, shareholder and managing director, said “T&R Floor Covering Distributors Limited, a family run business since 1977, sought a successor who shared our unwavering dedication to superior customer service. TradeChoice emerged as the natural choice, renowned for their commitment to excellence.”

“Navigating the intricate process of selling our business was unfamiliar territory, but with the invaluable guidance of David Crump and the PKF Smith Cooper team, alongside Thomas Butcher and the Actons Solicitors team, we successfully sealed the deal. Their expertise was pivotal – without them, this transition wouldn’t have been possible.”
