Demand Soars for Flowcrete in South Africa

Flowcrete’s South Africa office has seen demand for its products increase significantly across the continent, with several exciting new projects in burgeoning markets.

Two particularly large-scale developments turning to Flowcrete SA’s durable and hard wearing flooring solutions are the Sentinel Expansion Project and the New Kansanshi Heavy Mining Equipment Workshops that are being built in Zambia by First Quantum Minerals. Both of these projects are installing Flowcrete’s Peran PTS power-floated Epoxy Screed system.

Many sectors across Africa are realising the possibilities of Flowcrete floors, from mining and manufacturing to food and beverage processing and healthcare. The Kalumbila Clinic in Zambia for example recently installed the seamless and smooth epoxy solution Flowshield SL alongside Flowshield SL ESD, which has been specially formulated to disperse static charge build up in the floor.

Outside of Zambia Flowcrete SA has identified several other key growth areas. Professional’s workshops have taken place in countries such as Zimbabwe to inform architects and engineers of the product range and in February this year Flowcrete South Africa officially opened a brand new Cape Town warehouse and sales office, built to service increasing calls for its systems in the developing Western Cape market.

This new facility provides a logistical advantage to the operation of the warehouse and sales office. Located at the Airport Industrial hub close to the Cape Town International Airport, it will be a huge benefit to clients who will see the lead times of products fall due to its ability to stock 88 tons of product much closer to the end user than was previously possible.

Flowcrete South Africa also has a head office and manufacturing centre in Durban with another office and manufacturing centre in Johannesburg. The combined South Africa operations are capable of providing flooring solutions to the whole of Africa.
