Oban carpet fitters expand their expertise into tiling
TWO ‘BOYS’ from Oban who decided to go it alone are thriving in the carpet fitting industry and are now expanding into the tiling business.
Donald Campbell and Garry McIvor, both from Oban, started carpet fitting at the age of 15 and have gone from strength to strength with D and G Flooring and Tiling.
Now in their late 20s, the men have made a real name for themselves in Argyll and the islands for a professional job in any setting.
Donald said: ‘We are happy to go anywhere to work. From town centre Oban, to the outlying areas and to the islands we have built up our business meeting the high demands of our customers.
‘It has also allowed us to see some really interesting places like Iona, Mull and Colonsay.’
Already providing an excellent job in carpet fitting, the men decided to set up a warehouse showing a range of carpets and vinyls on Nursery Lane in Oban - which is open Monday to Friday 9am until 5.30pm - and the newest addition to the business, tiling, fits in nicely.
Donald added: ‘We are expanding the business to including tiling. We are getting higher and higher demand for tiling both walls and floors, so we have brought the skills into the business to deliver another excellent service to our customers.
‘Between Gary and myself we have almost 30 years of experience. I would like to thank everyone who has supported us so far and we look forward to carpet fitting or tiling for you again soon.’
