We’re really excited here at Flowcrete to have won the RPM 2014 Connections Creating Value Award!
This accolade recognises the company that has most successfully worked with other entities in the RPM family to facilitate mutual growth, intercompany partnerships and co-operative business plans.
Mark Greaves, the President of Flowcrete Group (pictured), said “attaining RPM’s 2014 Connections Creating Value Award demonstrates the importance that both RPM and Flowcrete places in a synergised approach to business”.
Flowcrete teams across four different continents have been leveraging manufacturing capabilities, selling channels, local knowledge and management teams to enhance the presence, production capacity and market share of multiple RPM companies.
Partnering Around the World
Tremco and Carboline products are being manufactured in Flowcrete Asia’s Malaysian manufacturing facility. This provides a long list of advantages, as savings are made on shipping, import duty and storage costs and it also increases local stock levels and reduces lead times.
Flowcrete and Euclid Chemical have introduced a range of Euclid Chemical’s products to the market, which will be supported by the establishment of a full Euclid manufacturing facility in India within the next 6 months. Alongside this Flowcrete India has shared its regional expertise to develop a strategy and sales force to further Euclid Chemical’s market penetration.
Productos Cave, a Euclid Chemical company, is collaborating with Flowcrete Americas to launch the ultra-hygienic flooring solution Flowfresh into the country. Flowcrete Americas’ Latin American expansion plan also involves similar partnerships with Viapol in Brazil, Toxement in Colombia as well as the supply of material to Stoncor SCC in Argentina.
Stoncor is a key partner of Flowcrete’s in the Gulf region, where an exchange of information has led to a considerable amount of Flowcrete’s Deckshield traffic deck coatings range being manufactured at Stoncor’s facilities in Dubai and Saudi Arabia over the last 3 years. This arrangement has increased margins, reduced lead times and generated cost savings for the production of Deckshield in the Middle East.
We’ve been collaborating with RPM sister companies in Europe since 2010. This includes manufacturing screed materials on behalf of Tremco UK and each business’s technical teams also engage in the research and development of products together.
