Brendan Cumiskey: “We have the most dedicated staff I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with”

DESPITE the impact of the recession, Brendan Cumiskey, managing director, TC Matthews, says that the firm – the biggest seller of wool carpets in the country – has noted that the demand for quality wool carpets has never diminished, even in recession.
“People are happy to look at wool carpets as an investment, rather than as a once-off discretionary purchase,” he says.
He added: “Carpets still account for a big slice of home furnishing spend, and we owe it to our customers to personally advise on what is the best investment for them – as a result, they trust us.
“Because we buy big volumes of wool carpets, we get them at very keen prices, and can then pass these savings on. It means more people who thought they couldn’t afford wool, now can.”
