Anthony Mynett – Director
As a director of Carpet Services, Anthony’s main duties are monitoring the daily performance of the company using over 30 years of trade knowledge. Starting at 12 years of age, Anthony would use any spare time and school holidays to help the family business, labouring on various projects including the Pope’s visit to Cardiff, experiencing different skills and techniques. Once out of full time education, he had gained enough knowledge in that time to carry out basic floor laying unsupervised and immediately began full time employment. His development led him into management, where he became of director of Carpet Services at 21 years of age having served his floor laying apprenticeship. Having spent much of his employment working on the commercial side of the business, Anthony’s interests remained in that sector slowly expanding the company client base towards larger projects, developing relationships with clients which still remain today. In 2002, he and Ray Gallivan started an NVQ assessment centre within the company, which involved assessing and verifying employees, in house, through NVQ levels 2 and 3 in floor covering. This eventually provided all employees to obtain certification in either level 2 and 3, through their supervision.
Coupled with the expanding commercial business, he recognised the requirement of a larger company base to accommodate stock levels, quality office work space and a more adequate location, which eventually lead to the purchase of Unit 2. After overseeing the refurbishment of Unit 2, to a purpose built facility, Anthony’s experience and dedication has insured the company success continues. He has introduced CS Flooring Solutions , the commercial arm of the business, to service existing and new clients. He has attended many work related courses with Altro Floors, Ardex, Forbo flooring, Polyflor to name a few. Additional health and safety legislation has lead to training in with Construction Skills Wales and CITB. Over the past 18 months, with assistance from XBA Business Finance, he has restructured the working systems and management process of the company which has ensured the business will further develop and remain a success.
