Why NICF Matters to You

Before we dive into Simon's role, let's talk about why the NICF is essential for you. NICF, or the National Institute of Carpet and Floorlayers, is all about excellence in the world of flooring. They make sure our industry maintains high standards in carpet, natural carpet, laminate, domestic sheet vinyl, timber, and luxury vinyl tile fitting. Your satisfaction is their priority, and that aligns perfectly with what we do here at Grimley Flooring.

From Carpets to Comprehensive Flooring Solutions

Originally, the NICF focused solely on carpet fitting and the British Standards Code of Practice. But times change, and so did they. In 1998, they expanded their horizons and became the National Institute of Carpet and Floorlayers, recognizing the multi-skilled professionals in our industry, including vinyl, wood, laminate, and vinyl tile fitters.

Investing in Skills for You

The NICF, in collaboration with the Contract Flooring Association, launched the Flooring Industry Training Association (FITA) in '98. It's the place where flooring professionals, like those here at Grimley Flooring, refine their skills to provide you with the best possible flooring solutions. Check out FITA's state-of-the-art training facility at to see where the magic happens.

Champions of Your Flooring Needs

The NICF has always been a driving force in celebrating excellence. They've hosted the UK Floorcovering Fitter of the Year competition for years, spotlighting the best in the flooring industry. They've also pioneered the European Team Floorlaying Championships in Germany, showcasing the skills of flooring experts from all over Europe. It's all about ensuring you receive top-notch service.
