Home News COBA Group’s Ed Wells to represent C.A.T.

Warwickshire, England—Following the acquisition of Carpet Accessory Trims (C.A.T.) by the COBA Group, a privately funded group of manufacturing and distribution businesses, Ed Wells now brings his industry experience to a wider group of customers.

In December 2021, Wells joined the COBA Flooring account management team to provide a newly expanded range of flooring products and accessories to businesses in his area. Wells has several years’ experience representing C.A.T. and bringing its specialist designer trims to the construction sector in the UK and overseas. By adding COBA Flooring’s range of entrance matting systems to his portfolio, Wells said he can better serve his customers with a wider set of high-quality solutions, most of which are made in the UK.

A recent project that demonstrates the practicality of bringing these two flooring brands together is the Birmingham Rep Theatre, which saw the installation of C.A.T.’s BN7 satin brass nosings in addition to a bespoke Plan.aaluminium entrance mat constructed by COBA Flooring. Similarly, Wells said he has been cooperating with both the architects and flooring contractors on the Shakespeare Theatre project in Prescot. C.A.T. will be used here for solid brass nosing’s ,perimeter details and potentially COBA entrance matting. Completion is set to be later this year.

“In my short time working with COBA, I’ve realized there is a reason they have been a matting expert for more than 40 years—they just know what products stick,” Wells said.

Wells covers the West Midlands, East Midlands, Northwest, Yorkshire and Humber as well as the Northeast. He also manages the PE, MK, LU and SG postcodes in the East of England. The wide array of clients Wells works with include flooring contractors (commercial and domestic), flooring wholesalers, interior fit out contractors, joinery companies, gym and sport flooring specialists, main contractors, interior designers, architects and, lastly, property management companies.
