Flowcrete Asia, the international flooring specialist company, has expanded its presence in South East Asia with the opening of a sales and technical support office in Indonesia.
This follows from recent successes with flooring projects carried out for multinational companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, L’Oreal, Unilever, Frisian Flag and CharoenPokphand.
“This is a significant step forward in the expansion of our regional network and will enable us to better service our customers in this important market. Having technical staff on the ground also means we will be able to provide site support to our approved applicators in the area,” said Desmond Sin, director of sales, Flowcrete Asia.
Fabian Paimanta, formerly business manager at BASF, has been appointed as country manager, with Sudarman Patmoharjo appointed for technical site support. Both have experience in the specialist flooring sector with particular knowledge of resin flooring products.
Flowcrete Indonesia’s initial focus will be on the food & beverage, pharmaceutical and automotive sectors where Flowcrete’s range of seamless resin systems can be useful.
Systems include Flowfresh with built-in antimicrobial for areas requiring the highest levels of hygiene, Flowfast for fast-track refurbishment work and Deckshield for car park coating.
Accredited with Singapore’s Green Label in the Environmentally Friendly/Low VOC PaintsCategory, Deckshield is available in different forms for exposed decks, intermediate decks and ramps. The seamless, slip resistant surface makes it easy to clean and the range of colours enables parking bays, driveways and pedestrian walkways to be safely separated.
Lighting levels are improved through Deckshield’s reflective properties, enhancing the overall ambience of the car park and helping operators to reduce energy consumption.
With the rapid-cure Flowfast system, flooring can be ready to receive traffic just two hours after application, allowing environments to be changed quickly.
The hard-wearing yet decorativesystem can be installed without having to remove the existing flooring, reducing waste andsubstantially minimising noise levels during the project.
“Specifiers are moving up the value chain as owners and developers look for sustainable finishes for their projects. Our seamless flooring systems offer high performance characteristics with eco-friendly properties and pleasing aesthetics,” added Mr Sin.
