Wallpaper King has designs on airports

From graduate to Managing Director, Richard Wilde, who graduated in 2008, has transformed his company from a specialist print business into a niche manufacturing operation.

Creating in 2009, he and his team specialised in the design and print of custom wallpaper and wall murals. Growing year on year, the business became one of the largest suppliers in the UK, and the company now plan to enter the European market next year.

Following this success, Richard decided to branch out from wallpaper, and earlier this year launched a brand new flooring concept; Murafloor. The product itself is a printed vinyl flooring that allows custom designs and photos to be printed onto the surface, which brings never before seen and endless design options to the world of flooring. Suitable in both homes and commercial premises, these unique designs have proved to be very popular, with current projects ranging from small bathrooms and kitchens in houses, to large commercial projects in retail stores, hospitals and a project at Oslo Airport.

Richard said: “The product took a while to be developed, with over 18 months of research and development going into it. I feel that in the past year, many of the things I learnt at the University of Lincoln, particularly in areas that I studied in business strategy have been incredibly valuable, and have more than helped me get the company to where it is today.”
