PWC has secured the audit of European floor-coverings distributor Headlam.
In a stock exchange update, the London-listed business said it had replaced KPMG, the group’s auditor since 1992, following a competitive tender process originally announced in the group’s 2014 annual report.
Headlam said the tender process was undertaken “in line with emerging best practice” following changes to the rules governing auditor appointments.
PwC will undertake the audit of the group’s accounts for the year ended 31 December 2016.
