Having opened its first UK store in Birmingham in 1990, Aldi has grown to over 800 stores nationwide.

The supermarket chain is the proud winner of numerous awards including ‘Favourite Supermarket’ at the customer-voted Good Housekeeping Food Awards 2019, ‘Best Grocer’ in the Retail Week Awards 2019 and ‘Best Value for Money Supermarket’ in the Moneywise Home Finance Awards.

As the UK’s fastest growing supermarket brand, Aldi plans to open 130 new stores in the next 2 years including a series of ‘local’ sub-branded stores. The new ‘local’ sub-brand aims to help shoppers differentiate between its smaller city stores and its conventional sized outlets.

The ‘Aldi Local’ concept was first trialled in Balham in early 2019 and now, following positive feedback, the supermarket chain has opened a new ‘local’ in Camden and converted a further 6 stores to the ‘local’ format.

For its newest ‘Local’, Aldi  specified INTRAflow Plus with hard wearing ribbed rubber and INTRAlux Elite inserts in anthracite to provide a flexible, durable, yet cost effective solution.

INTRAflow Plus Entrance Matting can be used in both Zone 1 external and Zone 2 internal areas, making it a perfect choice for busy supermarkets with automatic doors that frequently open to the elements.

The heavy-duty Entrance Matting system provides exceptional performance under heavy foot and wheeled traffic – easily withstanding wheelchairs, prams and laden shopping trolleys. The initial ribbed rubber inserts provide superior moisture and dirt removal, whilst the densely tufted INTRAlux Elite inserts provide exceptional absorption for residual cleaning.

The planks are made from 100% recycled aluminium and INTRAlux Elite inserts are made from 100% Econyl regenerated nylon making them a natural choice for the quietly eco-conscious brand.
