While most carpet sold in Britain today is imported from the continent, this family business continues to manufacture at its two mills in Lancashire. Founded by the late Neville Cormack OBE in 1956, Cormar recently began selling overseas, winning customers from countries including Hong Kong and South Korea. Managing director David Judge, 58, has overseen sales doubling in the last ten years to £104.3m in 2014.
