Nouwens Carpets was announced as the sole local distributor of the popular Modulyss collection on 25 November 2016. The company expects the collaboration between the two organisations to allow for strategic and mutually beneficial developments, as they will be able to combine their similar expertise and interests to add greater value to the industry. The Modulyss brand is well known within the local market and the partnership with Nouwens, also known as a world class brand, is set to be a favourable alliance.

Christophe Mortier, Export Manager at Modulyss comments: “Our state of the art modular carpet tile solutions for the contract market are designed with the highest respect for the environment, with no compromise on quality and innovative designs. We are confident that our similar cultures and strategies are aligned and will strengthen both brands and add value to the industry.”

The acquisition of Modulyss had enabled Nouwens’ to add another world class brand to their existing range of off-the-shelf soft flooring solutions. Their ongoing focus is to ensure that customers have local and international brand offerings to suit their application requirements.

Oscar Grobler, Chairman of Nouwens Carpets adds: “We were approached by Modulyss because of our solid reputation in the marketplace for complying with world-class standards within the existing Nouwens operation. The recent announcement made by the Export Director and Regional Export Manager for Modulyss has been an exciting milestone for the company. The Modulyss brand is synonymous with quality and innovation, which is a strategy that Nouwens has embraced since our inception in 1962.

“Not only does this collaboration allow us to expand into a whole new market, it is also a stepping stone towards becoming South Africa’s leader in the soft flooring industry,” concludes Oscar.
