Eclipse Flooring

My name is Darren Ewing and my business partner is Paul Pinder, we started up Eclipse Flooring in 1998. I am 41 years of age in live in Wallasey in the Wirral. I started my career in 1987 after leaving school. I went straight onto a CITB scheme which was college & site learning and I earned my City & Guilds in floor laying. My placement was at Variety Flooring in Liverpool and I continued working there after my training was complete. I worked there for 11 years until 1998. Their main work was vinyls, ceramics & contract carpet. I specialised on design type flooring like Amtico and Karndean which was the main flooring I laid while at Variety flooring.

I am Amtico Registered, Passed the Karndean advanced course and just completed my NVQ2 in floor laying. Paul Pinder has been in flooring for 45 years and has mainly fitted vinyls, carpets & ceramics. We have other floorlayers to call upon if needed for bigger contracts who are all CSCS registered. We are both cscs registered cards and I have just passed my NICF ( National Institute of Carpet & Floorlayers). Added to the team is Kieran Bailey who is our 2013 Apprentice and is well on his way to becoming a top flooring professional.
