Flowcrete South Africa’s Cape Town site has moved to a larger location to keep up with its rapid growth in the region.
Flowcrete South Africa’s Cape Town site has moved to a larger location in order to meet increasing customer demand for its specialist resin flooring solutions.
In November 2013, the leading flooring manufacturer expanded its existing sales branch in Cape Town by opening a warehouse and distribution facility. In May this year the success that this development led to meant that Flowcrete South Africa outgrew its original site in the city and had to move to a new location double the size of the previous one.
Staying within the same industrial park, but now situated at Unit 6 & 7, 55 Manhattan Street, Boquinar Industrial Park, Cape Town, Flowcrete South Africa has enhanced its capacity to supply commercial and industrial construction projects in the area with high quality resin flooring materials from a central and convenient location.
The new warehouse facility can hold 170 pallets as opposed to the 85 pallets that the old warehouse could hold. This increase in stock holding capabilities makes delivering products to construction sites a quicker and more streamlined process.
Five people are currently employed at the new facility, which also has a much larger office space and includes a training room where Flowcrete’s approved applicators can receive new product training and refresher courses.
“Moving our Cape Town operation to a larger site marks a significant step in our capacity to supply more high performance resin flooring materials to developments in the region faster and more effectively than ever before,” states Flowcrete South Africa’s Managing Director, Craig Blitenthall.
Some of the products that Flowcrete South Africa has found to be most popular in the Cape Town area include several systems from its HACCP International certified Flowfresh range, the hardy industrial epoxies Flowcoat SF41 and Flowshield SL as well as cementitious based concrete repair products such as Conrep SF65.
This investment exemplifies Flowcrete South Africa’s commitment to the growing Western Cape region and highlights its capacity to provide the area’s high value infrastructure, industrial and commercial developments with flooring solutions tailored to each project’s unique challenges.
