Posh Flooring is the online store of nationwide flooring retailer Flooring Republic.
Flooring Republic have had stores across the UK since January 2016, and are the retail arm of Anbo International Holdings, a family-run Chinese wood flooring manufacturer and distributor. Anbo, run by Bobby Zhou, have 30 years experience behind them, and supply sustainable products from forestry, woodland and production centres in China.
Meanwhile, Posh Flooring originated as an online-only flooring retailer set up by Dominic Nowell-Barnes in 2011, and was one of the UK’s fastest growing businesses, with Dominic spotting a gap in the market for a flooring company which was purely based online. After a couple of years, Dominic was able to expand his business, and set up a retail store in Leeds City Centre.
In 2017, a merger deal was agreed which would see Posh Flooring, who were one of the major players in the online market, become the online arm of Anbo’s retail business Flooring Republic. The move saw Flooring Republic become a fully integrated business, which combines manufacturing, distribution and retail into one body, while also becoming the UK’s first multi-channel flooring retailer; offering customers one low price whether you buy online, buy by phone or buy in store.
Armed with a combined total of 36 years in the industry, exceptional business acumen and substantial investment, Flooring Republic is now one of the fastest growing retailers in the country, with over 20 stores nationwide, and plans in place to have 80 stores by the end of 2018. Stocking an incredibly broad range of products ranging from beautiful solid oak, to elegant vinyl and vintage looking parquet there is something for every taste.
