How Lincolnshire Flooring came to be

Graham JeffersonFollowing on from our previous introductory blog post, we wanted to provide a brief history of how Lincolnshire Flooring came to be.

The history of Lincolnshire Flooring starts in 1956, when Tony Jefferson, father of current Managing Director Graham Jefferson (pictured left), stopped working at the engineering company Ruston-Bucyrus Ltd and started work at the National Flooring Company. He was offered “nine and a half” to do that, but didn’t know what exactly that referred to! It could have been nine and a half pounds per week, or it could have been nine and a half thousand per year! Graham was only one year old at the time. His father initially started by running the Lincoln branch of the National Flooring Company, but soon went on to open branches in York, Sheffield, Manchester and Liverpool. He took on many major flooring projects, including the Blackpool Ball Room and many of the RAF camps in the county that gave it the name “RAF Lincolnshire”.

Tony Jefferson had therefore spent 10 years working at the National Flooring Company by 1966, and had acquired a huge amount of knowledge and experience in terms of the flooring business. However, that year, Tony felt that the National Flooring Company was in a mess – head office were not paying bills, and worried that it was going to go into receivership, Tony Jefferson left the National Flooring Company to set up on his own. He founded the business that is still today Lincolnshire Flooring.

Today, 46 years on, Lincolnshire Flooring is Lincoln’s premier independent flooring company. We now offer our services to most of Lincolnshire, including Lincoln, Newark, Sleaford, Woodhall Spa, Louth, Horncastle, Gainsborough, Boston and Scunthorpe. These services include carpet, laminate and wood flooring. Future blogposts will look at how we got to where we are today and the services we have come to offer over time.

Introducing Lincolnshire’s premier independent flooring company

Hello! Firstly, we would like to say a proper welcome to our new Lincolnshire Flooring blog! We thought we’d start by providing a brief introduction to our company. We will be providing some history of the firm in later posts, but thought a brief overview of who we are and what we do would be a good start for now!

We provide flooring to most of Lincolnshire, including Lincoln itself, Gainsborough, Boston, Sleaford, Scunthorpe, Louth, Woodhall Spa, Horncastle, and also go over the Nottinghamshire border to Newark. Our wide range of flooring includes all types and colours of carpets to suit every taste, wood flooring, laminate flooring, Amtico flooring, Quickstep flooring, and cushion flooring. We will be writing more about these in future posts.


There are three major sides to Lincolnshire Flooring’s business – the retail side which means selling carpets and flooring to the general public, the contract sector for businesses, and the house building side, fitting out flooring in newly built homes. We will cover each of these in more depth later.


Our spacious and pleasant Lincolnshire Flooring showroom is based in Lincoln, and is easily accessible on the Outer Circle Road, with a free car park for easy access. We’re open from 8.30am during the week, 9am on Saturdays, and stay open until 5pm every day apart from Tuesday’s and Thursday’s when we stay open until 7.30pm. Feel free to drop in and meet our friendly and experienced sales staff for a chat about your flooring needs!
