About Us

Initially established by Tom Cockerill in 2003, as a one man installation team The Wood Floor Company has grown year on year since its inception.

Tom originally set up the company at the tender age of 21 and worked from the boot of his car with little tools and equipment for the first year. From there the business progressed to working from storage containers in Sadberge to warehouse premises in Dalton Street, Darlington, a porta cabin on Whessoe Road, Darlington and finally coming to rest for the last 7 years in their recently demolished 1500SQFT showroom on Whessoe Road, Darlington.  

Over the past three years in particular (since its most recent showroom renovation) the company has established itself as a one stop shop for all hard flooring related products. The company supplies, fits and maintains 1000’s of sq metres of floors each year and prides itself on quality of service provision for each and every client that walks through the door.  

In 2015 the company sold its Sanding & Refurbishment division so as to allow the husband and wife team the time to strengthen the company’s retail presence and in 2016 the company moved to its new premises on Northgate Darlington – a stones throw away from Marks and Spencer’s.

The new 4000 sq ft facility delivers a truly unique retail experience that is set to impress even the sturdiest of shoppers and features an uncompromising combination of products for all budgets, tastes and properties. Adding to its product offering the company also supplies Designer Doors, Laminate Floors, Timber Wall Cladding, Rugs and Homeware.
