Celebrating 30 Years of Dedicated Service – Congratulations Edward Riddle.

It’s official, folks! Our esteemed colleague and legendary co-founder, Edward Riddle, is hanging up his tape measure after 30 years of stellar service with General & Technical Flooring. Eddie, your dedication and vision have been the glue (or maybe the epoxy resin?) that’s held this company together.

Eddie and Scott Milne kicked off this adventure three decades ago. Since then, Eddie’s visionary leadership has been like the underlayment to our success—solid, essential, and often unnoticed until it’s missing!

He’s embodied hard work, integrity, and a commitment to excellence, setting the gold standard for all of us.

It’s no exaggeration to say General & Technical Flooring wouldn’t be the company today because of Eddie’s tireless efforts. We’re talking about a man who could probably lay flooring in his sleep—and we suspect he’s tried!

As we bid Eddie a fond farewell, we do so with immense gratitude for his countless contributions. His legacy is like a well-laid tile floor: it’s going to last, and it’s impossible to ignore.

On his final day, Eddie was showered with gifts from the team and suppliers. The pièce de résistance? A Raleigh Chopper bicycle in Fizzy Lemon Yellow! Yes, folks, Eddie’s childhood dream has come true—over fifty years later.

We want to congratulate Eddie on his remarkable career. Here’s to a future filled with smooth rides and endless adventures. Eddie, may your retirement be as flawless as your flooring installations. Cheers!
