Carpet Fitter of the Year 2018

Carpet Fitter of the Year 2018

Bostik is proud to have once again sponsored the Carpet Fitter of the Year competition, in conjunction with the National Institute of Carpet and Floorlayers (NICF).

The competition is an annual event open to all floor fitters in the UK, with the final held over two days at The Flooring Show in Harrogate.

John Wright from Leighton Buzzard was crowned the 2018 winner and received some great prizes including £2,000 cash, a selection of tools, winner’s trophy and one year’s free Master Fitter membership.

The NICF furthers the interests of its members by promoting excellence in the fields of carpet, laminate, domestic sheet vinyl, timber and luxury vinyl tile fitting. It offers its members and relevant industry organisations a range of benefits, products and services which will progressively enable a relevant, self-financing organisation to attract the majority of qualified, highly skilled carpet and floorlayers in the United Kingdom to its membership.

The NICF is a highly respected organisation within the flooring industry and is active in promoting the skilled floorlayer. For many years hosted the UK Floorcovering Fitter of the Year competition and initially devised and managed the European Team Floorlaying Championships held each year in Germany.
