PapaShop have had an incredible 2018, launching PapaFlex Event Matting worldwide, an alternative polypropylene tent flooring for the events industry.
PapaFlex sales in the UK are steadily increasing, in tipi, sperry, stretch tent and marquee hire companies, as well as venues.
“We have been using PapaFlex flooring under our stretch tents all season. We would just like to say how impressed we all are with the quality, tight weave and matting quality in general. The matting perfectly complements the natural colour of our canvas and brings a light feel and crispness to our tents” (Flexitent Ltd, UK)
Switching our focus across the water this year, we secured sales of our tent flooring worldwide. PapsShop have already exported to the USA (New Mexico, Massachusetts) Canada (British Columbia, Quebec) and Australia (New South Wales). We are delighted to have so many worldwide sales enquiries in the pipeline for 2019 too! These include New Jersey, New Hampshire, Florida, Colorado, California, Sweden and New Zealand.
Worldwide development opportunities
New worldwide markets have provided interesting development opportunities within PapaShop as well.
In the US for example, standard tent flooring is hard floor. PapaFlex Event Matting introduces a cheaper but beautiful alternative to clients. It mimics natural carpet but has the practical advantage of synthetic fibres. The matts are extremely strong, washable, colourfast and UV resistant. They are also more practical at tight access sites and take less storage and transportation space than a hard floor.
Overseas markets created a need for a new e-commerce website too. So at PapaShop we were really excited to develop and launch our new website this year. We now offer customers the opportunity to buy our matting online, wholesale, for their rental businesses. They have access to all options through the website, 2 colours, 2 design patterns, custom sizes, and payment and delivery options.
Happy New Year
As 2018 comes to a close, all of us at PapaShop would like to say a huge thank you to our current clients for your purchases. We look forward to seeing you again in 2019 and to welcoming some new customers from around the world… Happy New Year!
