Andy Holmes


Andrew Holmes, Managing Director of A&B Installations Ltd, has been working within the access flooring industry for over 30 years and within that time has gained a reputation for his ability to combine a superb service for his clients with unrivalled technical know-how and support. Andy began working as an installation operative for Intek, before working for Atlas and Hewetson Raised Access Flooring (now Kingspan Access Floors.) Andy made the step away from installation in 1997 and brought the wealth of knowledge he had gained to a management role with Kingspan Access Floors. After 14 years managing major contracts for numerous reputable access flooring companies, Andy decided it was an opportune time to strike on his own and since then hasn’t looked back.
