Executive Level Comfort at Grand Mercure Auckland


Belgotex has a longstanding relationship with the Grand Mercure Auckland and the owners of the hotel.

Working closely with the design team, Belgotex ensured the right products were used in the hotel environment to give the hotel its corporate identity and a hardwearing product that is stainproof, UV fade proof and bleach proof in the rooms, corridors and newly refurbished conference space.

“It’s been a pleasure working with the owners, general manager and design team to provide the transformation of what was a tired old property, into the stunning first class, Auckland City central hotel that it is now,” said Richard Slade, sales director at Belgotex.

Over the years, Belgotex has earned a reputation for being one of the leading flooring suppliers in the hospitality industry across New Zealand and the South Pacific. Belgotex has worked on a wealth of other hotel projects including the Grand Windsor, Skycity Grand and the Skycity Gaming Floor, Sofitel Lighter Quay and Sofitel Wellington refurbs, Rydges Auckland and Wellington refurbs, Auckland International Airport and the anticipated Sofitel SO Hotel Auckland.

The company formerly operated under the name Irvine Flooring, but after 20 years of distributing Belgotex products, the group acquired Irvine, so the business officially changed its name to Belgotex. One of the world’s largest privately-owned flooring conglomerates, the rebrand allows it to synergise its marketing and branding between NZ and the wider group.

Belgotex believes in many cases hotels don’t put enough emphasis on the traveller, or spend enough time enhancing the design on the floor.

“There are so many standard designs that can enhance the look and feel of a small area, at a fraction of the cost that some may expect. It’s nice to see that the Grand Mercure Hotel has recognised the importance for comfort in the rooms and using our High-End Plush Carpet in these rooms has provided an executive level of comfort.”
