A Journey of Growth and Success:

The opening of our new showroom represents a major milestone in our company's history as we celebrate 49 years in business. From our humble beginnings selling carpet tiles from the McCanns family home-place - a small rural cottage in Loughgall, we have grown into the success story we are today. This new showroom location in the Republic of Ireland will allow us to continue to grow and expand our current market share, serving our customers with excellence and innovation.

A significant investment of over £4 million was dedicated to the acquisition and fit-out of our new 15,000 sq ft showroom. This investment underscores our commitment to providing an unparalleled experience for our retail customers and professional industry partners, including interior designers, architects, and contractors.

The new showroom was designed by award-winning interior designer Garry Cohn. Featuring a design library complete with an extensive range of tile samples, our showroom is a true testament to design excellence and innovation. Garry Cohn also did the honour of being the MC at the event, adding his unique flair to the occasion.

As our Chairman and Founder, Seamus McCann, eloquently stated at the event, "Our new facility provides tangible evidence of our long-term confidence in the Irish marketplace."

We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead and believe that our new showroom will take the Armatile name and reputation to new heights.
