Cormar is privately owned and employs over 280 people. It owns its transport fleet of over 70 vehicles and supplies to flooring retailers, wholesalers and contractors throughout Great Britain and Ireland.

Formerly known as Greenwood & Coope (originally a textiles accessory supply business started in 1924), Cormar Carpets was set up by the late Neville Cormack O.B.E, - 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 in 1959 and a second mill, Holme Mill in Ramsbottom, was purchased via the acquisition of Holmebury Carpets in 1973. Cormar continues to produce all its easy-clean, soft deep-pile, wool twist and wool loop carpets at these two mills. In 2018, Cormar opened a new, purpose-built 130,000 sq ft regional distribution centre in Hemel Hempstead to service the south and central areas of England and Wales.
