Full circle for King
Abingdon Flooring has appointed Joe King as Midlands East regional manager.
King, who was sales director at sister company Millennium Weavers, will be responsible for key accounts in wholesale and independent retail throughout the region and the five Abingdon sales representatives in the area.
King’s first job in the flooring industry was with Abingdon in 1996. Since then he has worked for Brintons, Ulster Carpets, Victoria Carpets and Millennium Weavers.
‘I’m delighted to be joining Abingdon Flooring at what is a transitional time for the entire industry. I’m particularly relishing the chance to work with customers through operating post pandemic. There are sure to be many challenges, but I’m confident that the skills of our team and our ability to deliver exceptional value across the portfolio, will help to build a bright and positive future,’ says King.
‘Joe’s appointment comes at a challenging time for the whole industry and we’re delighted to add his experience to the team. Welcome back,’ says Martin Peace, Abingdon sales and marketing director.
