Founded in 1895, Victoria designs, manufactures and distributes carpets and other floor coverings, targeting the mid to high-end market under a number of different brands.
Headquartered in Kidderminster and with manufacturing and retail operations in Australia, Victoria’s carpets are found in Buckingham Palace, Balmoral Castle and several other Royal residences.
We are delighted that the company has acquired Abingdon with the support of BGF. The acquisition of Abingdon Flooring represents the second significant step forward for Victoria, following the acquisition of Westex in December last year. By integrating Abingdon into the Group, we anticipate accelerating Victoria’s growth by enhancing its combined offering and reach across the UK.Geoff Wilding, executive chair
