Company profile

Est in 1990, by Rory MacGillivray, originally as a floor-covering outlet on the Isle of Benbecula

Through national competitions the company has achieved numerous prestigious awards:

  • UK Floorcovering Fitter of the Year 2000 (only Scottish company to win this award, ever)
  • Scottish Floorcovering Fitter of the Year 1997, 1998, 1999 
  • South East England Floorcovering Fitter of the Year 2000

Over the years the company has naturally gone from strength to strength. It has also experienced successful growth in new areas e.g. home furnishings, upholstery, curtains, blinds and beds. 

Rory's belief that the emphasis should be on quality every bit as much as price. Proof again is in the award of a Government contract successfully re-tendered on numerous occasions over the last ten years. This contract award is for best value.

A bit about our team:

All our flooring installers are encouraged to go through a stringent personal development programme which involves undertaking apprenticeships, plus personal work development plans. We pair our installers with quality coursers and quality tools. This has resulted in all our floor layers being fully CSCS accredited to and beyond the levels required by industry.

Personal achievements include ''UK Floor Covering Fitter of The Year'', ''Scottish Floor Layer of The Year (three times), ''South East England Floor Layer of The Year'', and ''Apprentice of The Year in 2008''.

MacGillivrays were also picked by a UK wood flooring judge (Sid Bourne) as an example of professional standards for other companies to work towards. 

The company have demonstrated consistency and quality over a long period of time as awards have been won by different members of staff between 1996 and present.

Our philosophy has always been “Shop with Confidence. It’s a 100% no quibble guarantee, the best price for the best quality”
