As the business expanded, it took additional warehousing space at the Robinhood Industrial Estate to store carpets and wooden flooring, followed by another warehouse at the Bluebell Industrial Estate when the business moved into fabrics. Here, PG Powers stored fabrics and also the machinery and equipment for measuring and cutting the fabrics according to customer specifications. As the company grew larger again, it rented Smurfits Warehouse in Cherry Orchard Industrial Estate where it stocked carpet, curtain rails, fabric and wood flooring.
The company’s strong growth prompted Paddy to bring all PG Powers stock and equipment under one roof. He subsequently sold the Ballymount warehouse and purchased a larger warehouse on Killeen Road to operate as the central store and distribution centre for the company. At this time, Paddy also announced his retirement, and that Mike Moffatt, a long-term PG Powers employee, had bought the company.
Under Mike’s new leadership, the curtain rail component of the business was sold and PG Powers sharpened its focus on flooring solutions. In 2013, the company was acquired by Furlong Flooring, Europe’s largest manufacturing distributor of quality carpets, and moved back to Ballymount to the Furlong distribution centre on the M50.
Today, PG Powers remains one of Ireland’s most recognised flooring solutions providers with a quality and stylish range of collections to suit any room or use.
