THE TAK STORY
TAK Flooring started in April 2013 with the goal of providing firstly Dunedin and then Otago, with a quality, non-fuss commercial flooring service. After working for years in the flooring industry Greg Tomlinson, Mark Adamson and John Ketchen believed that by reducing overheads, increasing sustainability, improving service and offering alternate solutions, a small locally owned independent company could provide a higher quality service at a lower cost to the consumer.
Due to the constant requests from our commercial clients, as of April 2015 TAK Flooring has also provided a quality domestic flooring service. With access to a wide variety of industry leading suppliers we have the products and the installation team to make your renovation or new home a flooring success.
On 31 ST July 2023, founding Director Greg Tomlinson died in tragic circumstances. His impact on the success of TAK Flooring was immense, as a trainer, a manager, a mentor, and a friend. He is sadly missed.
