Ed Wells expands role to represent both COBA Flooring and C.A.T.

Following the acquisition of C.A.T. (Carpet Accessory Trims Ltd) by the COBA Group, Ed Wells now brings his industry experience to a wider group of customers.

In December 2021, Ed Wells joined the COBA Flooring Account Management team to provide a newly expanded range of flooring products and accessories to businesses in his area.

Ed has several years’ experience representing C.A.T. and bringing its specialist designer trims to the construction sector in the UK and overseas. By adding COBA Flooring’s range of entrance matting systems to his portfolio, Ed can better serve his customers with a wider set of high-quality solutions, most of which are made here in the UK.

A recent project that demonstrates the practicality of bringing these two flooring brands together is the Birmingham Rep Theatre, which saw the installation of C.A.T.’s BN7 Satin Brass Nosings in addition to a bespoke Plan.a aluminium entrance mat constructed by COBA Flooring.

Similarly, Ed has been co-operating with both the architects and flooring contractors on the Shakespeare Theatre project in Prescot. This is a highly regarded project in the North, and C.A.T. will be used here for solid brass nosing’s, perimeter details, and hopefully… COBA entrance matting. Completion is set to be later this year.

Here’s what Ed had to say, “In my short time working with COBA, I’ve realised that there is a reason they have been a matting expert for more than 40 years – they just know what products stick.”
