Our Story

James and Alex are a husband and wife team who began Synergy Flooring in 2017. James has been in the flooring industry for most of his life. He started uplifting and prepping floors, moved onto laying flooring and then became certified as a Carpet & Vinyl Installer. He later worked as a Sales & Project Manager and Architectural Specification Rep.

Alex is a qualified Chartered Accountant and worked as a Management Accountant and Finance Manager in the corporate world before taking a break to have their twins.
