Interfloor Ltd attracted visitors from 43 countries to its stand at the Domotex flooring show in Hanover.

Sales director Tony Capon described the January 17-20 show as “staggering”, with visitors from the Far East, the Middle East, Russia, North and South America, plus every European country.

Mr Capon said some new visitors placed orders at the event, including one who ordered four 40ft containers of Interfloor underlay. He said Duralay Timbermate Excel, an underlay for wood and laminate floors, was the brand most asked out.
