Sole SA distributor appointed for popular flooring

Pergo’s state-of-the-art products are highly regarded in South African interior design and architectural circles, availability has until now been a major problem. The oldest flooring manufacturer in South Africa, Van Dyck Carpets, has announced that it now offers the full range of hard flooring products produced by globally recognised multinational flooring specialist, Pergo. This follows its appointment as the exclusive distributor in the SADC region of the Belgium-based Pergo’s laminates, engineered wood floors, vinyl planks and tiles. “Pergo has always been a brand that has been recognised and valued highly in South Africa but, until now, distribution has been an issue,” said Dr Mehran Zarrebini, CEO of Van Dyck. “Due to our appointment as distributors, architects are specifying the product again. So we have had a lot of enquiries ahead of our official launch in October. Pergo products have already been specified for use in the refurbishment of all VW showrooms across the SADC region.” “Joining forces with Pergo is a real coup for us. This is the start of an exciting new synergy between two companies which have a longstanding and solid track record and a fervent interest in bringing quality products to customers backed by quick and reliable delivery.”

About Pergo

Pergo was established in Belgium in 1977 and has evolved into one of the world’s most respected flooring brands. It is not only one of the oldest producers of laminate flooring in the world but was the first laminate manufacturer to patent ground-breaking click joint technology. Zarrebini said that Pergo’s decision to appoint Van Dyck as the distributor in South and Southern Africa hinges on his company’s strong national distribution system, good service and the fact that Van Dyck has existing strong ties with other Belgian floor coverings companies. Pergo seeks an established distributor in SA with a good track record. Although van Dyck has traditionally been associated with carpets, it had also supplied luxury vinyl planks (LVPs) on a smaller scale.

Hard floor coverings have proved extremely popular in both the local residential and light commercial markets. Pergo offers premier products, particularly suited for medium to heavy commercial use. Pergo designs are inspired by the natural feel of wood, slate and rough concrete. They have an authentic feel supported by a unique bevel technology that helps to define the edges of each collection. The floors are easy to install, maintain and are durable. Their fully sealed surface means that dirt cannot penetrate the floor and stains can be cleaned using nothing but water.

“Pergo products offer delivery advantages compared with laminated flooring products from other countries such as China,” Zarrebini said. “We are aware that delivery from China can take up to ten weeks, whereas from Europe we can get this in more than halve that time because the company stocks  most of its products in their warehouse in Belgium. On the other hand, Chinese  manufacturers work on a make to order basis.”
