Fast growth Storeys link up with Ernst & Young.
Management at Washington-based Storey's say the link-up comes at a time of rapid growth which has seen it quickly build up a chain of 42 stores.
John Cattell, Storey's financial director, said: "It is important for us to be able to have access to a greater depth of financial advice and to be confident in the quality of that advice so that we can continue to grow and develop as efficiently as possible.
"Ernst & Young has a strong international reputation as tax and business advisers and we believe they have an important role to play in our way forward.
"We have a very proud history as a regional family-led business, but the scale of our operations has lead us to team up with a bigger player in the shape of Ernst & Young, who can help us with both specialist advice while also having a much broader knowledge and experience of UK companies of our size."
John Cattell will be working closely with David Mattu at Ernst &Young's Newcastle centre. David said: "It's a tremendous compliment to Ernst & Young to be working side by side with Storey Carpets on such crucial matters to its business performance."
Mark Hatton, office managing partner at Ernst & Young in Newcastle said: "At Ernst & Young we are very proud of our abilities to work with and add value to ambitious, fast growth entrepreneurial companies and I look forward to leading our team to work with Storeys as they go from strength to strength."
Storey chief executive, Simon Heptinstall, said: "The partnerships we continue to develop with companies such as Ernst & Young proves our growth is no overnight sensation."
