Cormar Carpets is a British manufacturer of tufted carpets based in Greater Manchester. It produces over 10m sq metres of primarily residential carpet per annum from its two mills - Holme Mill in Ramsbottom and Brookhouse Mill in Greenmount. Turnover to October 2014 was £104m, ranking as one of the top tufted carpet manufacturers in the UK by volume and value.

It is privately owned, and employs over 240 employees and runs a delivery fleet of 60 vehicles. Distribution of the carpet is through a network of 11 depots and 28 collection points throughout Britain and Ireland.

Formerly known as Greenwood & Coope (originally a textiles accessory supply business started in 1924) Cormar Carpets, set up by the late Neville Cormack O.B.E, was one of the first companies to start producing tufted carpet in Britain in 1956 at Nunn Hill Mills in the Rossendale Valley, Lancashire. It moved to Brookhouse Mill in Greenmount, Lancashire in 1959 and a second mill, Holme Mill in Ramsbottom, was purchased via the acquisition of Holmebury Carpets in 1973. All Cormar's wool twists, wool loop carpets and stain resistant polypropylene carpets are produced on site at its Lancashire mills.
