Martin Cairns - Partner

The chances are if you’ve bought event or exhibition carpet in the last 30 years, you’ll have heard of Martin Cairns. Martin’s fun and friendly nature, coupled with his passion for the industry help him turn flooring plans into cost-effective, great looking reality with ease. As former chair of ESSA, there really isn’t much he doesn’t know about events or carpeting. In his spare time, Martin is a talented musician, playing bass guitar for his band The Kahoona’s. He also loves skiing and can often be found easily navigating the slopes - and at the apres ski! 


Luke Reed - Partner

Luke comes armed with bags of experience in exhibition and event flooring. Luke was basically born into the events industry – he was even “christened” in an exhibition hall (ask him!). Luke has become well-respected in the industry for being industrious, helpful and going above and beyond to get a job done well, no matter what obstacles are thrown at him. In his spare time Luke is an avid sports fan, whether it’s cricket, football or golf - and will also be found hurtling down the ski slopes when he can. In Luke’s own words “Events aren’t a 9-5 job, they can be time pressured and be challenging, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!”


Andrew ‘Straps’ Stretton - Partner

Andrew, or Straps as he is better known in the industry, has a wealth of experience of event carpets. Straps is well known in events for his energy and his hard-working nature. He delivers excellence at every site he visits, and provides knowledge and assistance even while beavering away completing jobs to his usual high standards. When he’s not at work, Straps still covers miles in a matter of hours, just on two wheels, as he is an avid cyclist - but the only slopes you will find him on are generally covered in tarmac!
