The answer to that question we have to go back to 1949. Back then R.S.B decided to start a flooring company using the family name, Lancashire.
In the past when people used the likes of the yellow pages being named after a founder wasn’t a big issue, even though the family name is the same as the north-west county of Lancashire in England. However as technology has developed along with the digital marketplace and search engines like Google, the problem started to grow.
If you search for us by our name you will find our website comes up with many other listings in the county Lancashire which gives the impression that we are from Lancashire. Equally if you search for a London flooring contractor you will be presented with many results for London including our website but our name gives the impression we are based in Lancashire putting many people off clicking.
We have been based in Loughton, Essex for the last 10 years. The 57 years before that we were based Woodford green and Hoe street in Walthamstow.
Because of this confusion we are re-branding ourselves using the 3 partners surnames M.Lancashire, M.Barnard, B.Taylor. giving you the new name, LBT Flooring. We are still the same people who have been here since R.S.B. Lancashire retired himself. We have some new additions to the team so we can cover our a larger client base, yet continuing the same service you’ve come to expect from Lancashire Flooring… Sorry we mean LBT Flooring.
