— Company History —
Primeur started trading in March 1968 under the name of Clayton and Strutt. Our first customers operated in the mail order trade and one of the first deliveries we made was a coir doormat.
Primeur's product areas have expanded and changed dramatically over the years. Although today we concentrate on doormats and garden ranges, we once sold rotary airers, paddling pools and worked alongside Curver bringing their plastics range to the UK market.
1993 marked the start of Primeur's textile business. We began supplying scatter rugs to retailers and quickly expanded into other product areas including throws, cushions, beanbags & cubes, and doorstops.
Primeur were the first company to introduce washable doormats into the market in 1995. Since then it has grown to become our best selling category.
In 1997 the registered trading name was changed to Primeur Limited. Our logo can be seen on many products including the Mighty Mats brand.
In 2005 Primeur employed their first designer. Since then our talented team has grown into packaging and product designers and trend forecasters.
In January 2012 Primeur successfully trademarked 'Mighty Mat' for their branded doormats within the retail sector.
In 2016 Primeur launched its recycled rubber garden products range including stepping stones, garden borders, paving and planters. These eco-friendly products have won numerous awards in 2018 including 'Best New Product' of Glee 2018.
2018 marks Primeur's 50th year in business. Its also the year we expanded the Mighty Mat brand into 'Mighty Mats – the home of doormats' under which a collection of new developments were branded for our customers in the independent and garden centre sector.
