About Us

Metric Carpets was formed in 1973 by partners David Allen and Jock Watt,with a vision of creating a  small friendly company, with an emphasis on quality of both product and service.

Jock retired in 1979 and Davids son Alistair joined the company as a carpet fitter. allowing David to manage the shop and the estimating.

This worked well until 2000 when David became ill and sadly passed away in 2002. Alistair then took over the running of the company, maintaining the high standards set by his father.

Our shop manager, Shane Martins, joined the team in 2004, and is our back bone for making sure everyone and everything is where they should be. 

In 2006 Alistairs oldest son Stuart joined the fitting team, and soon after his second son Gregory also decided that flooring was the path he wished to follow, so today as we enter our 39th year of trading in our 3rd generation of the family, we still obey the rules set out by the founders of the company.
