Laird to step back at Fludes

Andy Laird, Fludes Carpets owner and md is to step back from day to day running of the south coast of England flooring chain.

Laird, who has been in the flooring industry for more than 50 years, will remain involved in the four-store chain and has no intention of selling the company.

Peter Hebditch , Fludes sales director, will become md. 

‘After 50 years in the flooring industry, it is time to enjoy stepping back from day-to-day responsibility and let Peter and our experienced team provide the service levels we are known for, while developing some new ideas,’ says Laird. 

He bought the company from the Flude family in 2018, having been md since 2010.

‘I am proud to be given this fantastic opportunity of being md. I feel ready to move the business forward to celebrate the 100th year of trading of Fludes Carpets in 2029,’ says Hebditch.
