Martin Philips

In 1981 Martin Phillips opened his first carpet store in Newtownards. At the age of 24, he quickly built a reputation for value for money and great personal service and before long became one of the best known carpet and vinyl suppliers in the province. Throughout his business he continued to improve and excel in supplying flooring solutions for customers, expanding product ranges and services.

There are now currently seven stores province-wide, making Martin Phillips the largest independent flooring retailer in Northern Ireland. In 2007 the company opened a dedicated wooden flooring and rug store in Newtownards to compliment the carpets and vinyls already sold there and also increased the amount of wooden flooring products available in the other six stores, which now also stock rugs.

Martin Phillips continues to drive forward in the current market and remains at the forefront of flooring solution providers with ever changing deals and sustained first-rate customer services. And although sadly Martin passed away in 2006, his vision and commitment to customer service continues on through his family and colleagues alike, to make Martin Phillips what it is today.
