news share your news email: claire@floorinsite.com Jaymart gets even Bigger Many flooring businesses boast that they are the “biggest and best” but Jaymart’s claim to have the UK’s widest range of specialist floorings, mats and mattings has yet to be truly challenged. Jaymart’s ranges are ever evolving and the company has just moved to much bigger, better premises at Crusader Park in Warminster. The company stocks approximately 500 different ranges, which, although impressive, is merely a fraction of its complete product list. Sales Director, Paul Macfarlane, says “We literally have something for everyone here, and there are always alternatives!” The company was founded by Martin Bunyard in 1967 and continues to be run in the same dynamic fashion by his daughter, Fiona Byrom, at the helm. Fiona says “It has been our dream for 20 years to move into our own premises, and we are thrilled that, with the help of our fantastic staff we have achieved that ambition!”. Product is sourced from around the world and the company’s reputation has led to some interesting orders. Set designers from the worlds of film and television frequently place orders … for example, Jaymart’s products have been used in James Bond films, the “Big Brother” house and many TV programme sets. A bespoke manufacturing service is contained within the company’s warehouse, a major part of which is extruded aluminium entrance matting systems. This again has resulted in many prestigious installations over the years, including the Barbican, Sandown Park race course, the Business Design Centre (London), the Savill Garden (Great Windsor Park), the Wellcome Trust (London) and the Millenium Point (Birmingham) and many more. Jaymart were also proud to be supplying their entrance matting systems to the London 2012 Olympics. An additional service is provided in the form of the reproduction of logos and images within mats. An enhanced, digital image is sent to a laser cutting machine which automatically cuts the appropriate shade out of the main carpet, then processes the various pieces to create the desired effect. Jaymart’s logo mats are the entrance mat of choice for Caffe Nero and Ted Baker amongst many others. Jaymart’s new Sports & Leisure division is headed up by the founder’s son, Nick Bunyard, and he is busy assembling a top-notch team keen to do battle for the expanded market business. Jaymart currently supply Floors Magazine 17 June/July 2014 a wide range of sports and leisure organisations including Tottenham Hotspur FC training centre, Arsenal training centre, Lancashire County Cricket Club, Oxford Rugby Club and the local, brilliant Warminster Rugby Club. A recent score for Nick’s team is “Bladerunner” installed at Brighton & Hove Albion’s 15-pitch £30M state of the art training centre at Lancing. Sports & Leisure’s portfolio is being grown to offer an enhanced package and improved customer service with Facebook, Twitter and a techie blog by new recruit, Sports & Leisure Manager, Paul Farrell. Approximately 35 people are employed by Jaymart, but further expansion is on the cards. With enhanced storage capacity the company are looking to increase their ranges and move the company on to its next growth stage. For more information T: 01985 218994 www.jaymart.co.uk
