"Tarabus Flooring has become an essential part of the design of vehicles within London Central / London General. The Company is always prepared to provide quick responses for requests to design changes and in the many years of dealing with them no problems have ever arisen. Product quality is good and long lasting – it still retains its good looks after years of use in London’s arduous conditions. I would have no hesitation in recommending the material to other operators as long as they do not steal my designs!! "

"I can say at this moment in time that the self-adhesive floor covering supplied has quite simply made us smile from ear to ear! The covering is so easy to use, literally slashing hours off the build time of the vehicle and will be something we will go back to time and time again I’m sure. For our guys to use a product and comment on its ease of use and be happy using the product, that says something! It very, very rarely happens. In short, we are extremely pleased with the covering and the help that you have given us. I would hope that we will be able to order a complete bus kit from you in the coming months exactly the same as the sample set supplied. Once again, many thanks for your help"

"Taraplus with self-adhesive backing is fantastic, the lads on the shop floor had to admit that this new product was a must after the initial trials. The time that we save now we are using the self-adhesive backed Taraplus compared to the time spent on setting up, applying the glue, removing overspray and general maintenance of a non-self-adhesive backed product is where this product comes into its own. Now we can finally get rid of the spray glue guns, air masks and panel wipe associated to fitting lino onto floors"

"Its not often that you are offered a product that claims that it can Cut process time/Reduce stock and Improve on quality at a stroke and actually achieves all of these aims. That is what Taraplus Self Adhesive floor covering has achieved. Add to that the satisfaction of actually getting the thumbs up from the lads on the shop floor and everything’s good. All that Mike Houston promised was delivered and we now have a very happy set of customers with an improved product, without the almost inevitable cost implications from improved quality. We can thoroughly recommend this product and will be using it on our current Ambulance and PTS contracts due to come on stream in January 2013."

"Martyn Industrials were able to provide flooring specifically designed for automotive application, which was exactly what we were looking for. Initially we fitted their standard Tarabus product and fitted this with a contact adhesive. This proved to be very successful, not only did it provide excellent durability but was noticeably superior in quality compared to other brands. We were recently introduced to the self-adhesive version of this product and at first had my reservations with regard to installation. Having fitted it however, I could not have been more satisfied. Once the backing was removed it just fell into place, resulting in a perfect flawless finish."

"Wilker UK have used Taraplus flooring, as supplied by Martyn Industrials, as standard fitment in our ambulance and minibus builds for many years. I find that their products, and their quality of service, sets a standard for the industry, and in particular, their ability to deliver to tight schedules at short notice is exactly what we require in a fast moving modern production factory. Recommended."

"At Stewarts Coaches, we like to offer our customers the best experience possible. We have achieved it on our New Thames Valley Park service, with the great products from Martyn Industrials' Tarabus range, when we chose to use their “Gaya Wood effect flooring” in our Mercedes Citaros from Evobus. We have found the flooring to give a great contemporary look and feel, that exhibits a real quality through the depth of the wood effect. In use it is simple to maintain to a high standard of cleanliness, remaining dirt free and non-slip, even during use on wet days. I would happily consider using these flooring products on new vehicles and refurbishments undertaken on current fleet vehicles. "

"Since October 2012 we have been using the Tarabus " self adhesive" floor covering in our production factory. We are most pleased with this new technical innovation, and, with this technology, we are able to reduce our usage of neoprene glues, which enables us to meet environmental directives. Our partnership with Tarabus self adhesive products fulfils our need for glue reduction and time saving."

"'The cut to size kits of self-adhesive floor covering supplied to us from Martyn Industrials have been well received by all parties. From our team members, who carry out the installations, right the way through our organisation and onto our customers. The covering provides a great anti-slip finish which aesthetically is in keeping with the rest of our light commercial vehicle solutions.'"

"After a visit from Mike Houston, we decided to go ahead and purchase the self adhesive floor covering, and welding kit, to use on refurbishments and collision damage repairs. Training was included in the price of the kit, which was carried out professionally, and staff who attended the training reported that it was invaluable, and all gained new skills, and expert knowledge. The new self adhesive flooring, and welding materials, which we now use within the Accident Repair Centre, have enabled us to carry out repairs equivalent to the original manufacturers specification, and provide a first class quality job for our customers, reduce turnaround time, and eliminate health and safety concerns which come with the application of large areas of contact adhesive. Altogether a thoroughly worthwhile purchase. "

" We are delighted with the new look and feel of our new buses, the Tarabus Gaya Mosaic flooring really enhances the overall image projected to our customers. The flooring is easy to keep clean and the buses still look like new, one year on "

"I was approached by Brighton & Hove Buses to work as the interior designer within the design team producing the Fringe bus moving art installation - which is a part of their 'Get on go somewhere' campaign. Within the bus we needed to make maximum visual impact but obviously safely and within VOSA and DDA regulations. I thoroughly researched the market for suitable and safe flooring products. The ranges are very much reduced for transport suitable floors but I've been very happy with what I have specified from Martyn Industrials/Gerflor. I've worked in commercial interior design for 20 years and have used Gerflor for a number of projects. Mike Houston from Martyn Industrials was extremely helpful and even came with his installation expert to assist and train the Brighton & Hove team in fitting the floors. "

"Everyone here is very happy with Tarabus self adhesive flooring- the time saving pays for the additional cost of the product. We can lay it and weld straight away, instead of waiting over night for traditional glue to dry. We intend to change all future flooring we buy to Tarabus self adhesive "

"We used a recent refurb contract to trial Tarabus’s self adhesive flooring and performance primer. The time saved on this project was astonishing. Gerflor kindly offered to carry out this trial installation as a training exercise, which resulted in our staff being trained in new skills to fully take advantage of this process improvement- they also received floor welding training with the latest technology and innovations which Gerflor offer as the market leader in Transport Flooring. Having used Tarabus flooring for many years I believe that the new product offers the industry the chance to drastically reduce the process time. The feedback we received from our staff was one of amazement and positivity, and I would like to thank Mike Houston and Gerflor's technical team of Andy Sedman and Nick Egan. "
