Nutland Carpet Accessories

The story begins in 1966. Hubert Nutland was known as Nutty to his customers whilst working as a commercial traveller for a company called Jiffytex Products. He sold carpet fitting accessories to carpet shops and carpet fitters. In 1966 he sold the family home and invested the money in 'Carpet Accessories'. At this time he was still travelling each day with a car brim filled with products. Mrs Nutland was enlisted to 'do the accounts'!

In due course the number of products and manufacturers stocked increased. Laybond, formally Shell, and Altro Floors were among the first to support him. The company moved from its humble beginnings to purpose built warehouses in Chandlers Ford. By 1973 the company had become 'Limited' and Son Jim joined the growing team.

By 1977 we moved again to larger premises. In 1982, the year that Nutty passed away, we opened a branch at Poole in Dorset. Since that time we have continued to enlarge our stocks.
