Here at Atkinson & Kirby, we recently launched our new Specification range, designed with commercial flooring in mind. Wood flooring can elevate any commercial area, from co-working hubs and office spaces to hotels and restaurants, providing classic flooring with modern twists and varying colour palettes. The focus was to bring a sustainable option to the commercial sector that is high quality and versatile. Within this new range is the 'Rockwood' collection, a selection of SPC flooring that draws inspiration from nature and boasts durability and improved eco-friendly credentials. Our ‘Rockwood’ collection has a variety of flooring décors, each offering a tough, mineral composite base underneath the wood effect decorative surface. This design gives the effect of natural wood whilst still being both water resistant and highly durable. What sets our 'Rockwood' collection apart is the embossed in register finish. The texture of the surface exactly matches the pattern of woodgrain, giving an authentic feel to the flooring. This attention to detail ensures that our flooring not only visually replicates natural wood but also recreates the tactile experience. To successfully replicate real wood, ‘Rockwood’ has twelve different plank patterns within each colour to choose from to customise to the space, ranging from the grey tones of Cordillera Oak, warm patterns in Sierra Oak and earthy hues from Lebanon Oak. Each surface maintains an authentic feel while having a scratch shield coating that is highly water resistant, ensuring that the planks are not susceptible to moisture or temperature morphing. Rockwood flooring is perfect for kitchens, bathrooms and corridors, which are again, prepared for high footfall and large impact areas that need more protection. ‘Rockwood’ is the perfect blend of sustainability and durability. The flooring maintains a decorative surface on top of a mineral composite base, creating a tough and long-lasting floor that is also highly sustainable in its manufacture.

We are incredibly proud to announce that Archwood Group has been shortlisted as a finalist for ‘Best Newcomer’ at the Investors in People Awards 2023. The Investors in People Awards celebrates and rewards organisations that are committed to improving the work environment for their employees. This is a significant achievement for the business and a brilliant acknowledgement of our hard-working HR team. It signifies that we not only recognise the importance of employee wellbeing but have also taken substantial steps to make it an integral part of our corporate culture. It also serves as recognition for our team’s ongoing dedication to creating a workplace where employees can thrive both personally and professionally. Earlier this year, we also received the organisation’s ‘We Invest in Wellbeing’ gold accreditation for our dedication to looking after our employee’s mental health and welfare. The accreditation followed the work we’ve been doing towards our new wellbeing strategy, which ensures all of our employees receive equal opportunities and have dedicated spaces to work, as well as socialise. Helping to improve the overall wellbeing of all of our employees has been one of the core focuses for our fantastic HR team over the past two years, especially following the COVID-19 pandemic. As a result of this, we worked to ensure we could protect employee welfare and monitor how our team could work safely together within the workplace. As a family-run business, employees always come first at Archwood Group and this is reflected within all parts of our workplace and team, from our North Wales-based factory in Chirk, to our Scotland base and all of our brilliant employees working around the UK. The Investors in People Awards 2023 will take place on the 14th of November. Good luck team! To find out more, please visit: https://www.investorsinpeople.com/awards/READ ARTICLE
