Flowcrete Americas Celebrates the Opening of New Manufacturing Plant
Oct 30 2014
- New plant will allow Flowcrete to meet increasing demand.
- President of RPM Performance Coatings Group opened the plant.
- Total surface area is almost double that of the old facility.
Flowcrete Americas has celebrated the opening of its new state-of-the-art manufacturing plant and office facility with an intimate lunch event, held at the company’s new premises in Spring, TX.
Flowcrete Americas, part of the RPM Performance Coatings Group, is a manufacturer of seamless resin flooring materials, including epoxies, cementitious urethanes, and MMAs, which have been designed to meet the specialist needs of heavy industry, manufacturing plants and other industrial processing facilities.
Many customers joined the Flowcrete Americas team for the celebrations, which saw opening remarks by Flowcrete Group President, Mark Greaves.
Speaking at the time, Mark Greaves applauded the Flowcrete Americas team for successfully migrating the company’s operations to its new home with minimal disruption to trade and hailed the opening of the new facility as a landmark occasion in the company’s history, propelling future growth and taking the company’s stateside operations to the next level.
David Reif, President of RPM Performance Coatings Group, officially opened the plant before all guests were invited to join a tour of the new premises and the company’s improved facilities.
The 30,000-square-foot site will allow the company to more than double its production capacity to over 20 million pounds per year.
Total surface area is almost double that of the old facility, making room for significantly larger production, office, warehouse, and laboratory areas, in addition to six more loading docks and double the number of both packaging and liquid mixer stations.
For enhanced safety, the plant features a highly protective fire suppression system that includes a foam-based, high-density ceiling sprinkler system, as well as end rack sprinklers.
This move will enable Flowcrete Americas to meet growing demand for specialist polymer floor systems across the United States, Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean, as well as to increase customer service response capacity.
“This new premises will do a great deal to meet our current manufacturing requirements while also future-proofing the business, meaning that we can confidently continue with the business expansion plan Flowcrete Americas has put in place across both North America and Latin America,” said Dave McNeece.
“Our clients will see a direct and immediate benefit from this development as it will allow us to produce more materials and deliver them to construction sites faster — reducing lead times for even the largest orders.”
