In addition to flooring products, STS has a competitive range of wall-cladding products in its portfolio.
STS was formed as Stair Tread Supplies in 1965, over 50 years ago. Through its history it has merged with and acquired other flooring distribution companies, been through a number of sales and also management buy-outs. The latest MBO took place in 2008 when Ray Colgate and Stuart Gay acquired the controlling interest in the company, thereby maintaining and continuing the company’s independence.
In early 2011, STS opened up its Walls Division and now promotes Simplyclad®, its own brand of wall cladding. In July 2014, STS started to support its core contract activities by expanding into the retail sector. Work to develop the company’s activities in the wall cladding and retail sectors, whilst maintaining significant presence in the contract market, continues to the present day.
The business ethics of STS have served the test of time and are based on the premise that distributors need, above all else, quality products, immediate service and technical assistance with a personal touch. Today this still stands as we continually strive for excellence in all we do, dedicated to meeting the needs of our customers and staff.
STS are ISO 9001- 2008 certified. ISO 9001 is the world’s most recognised quality system and is used by over one million organisations globally.
