The Flowcrete India team took the chance during its New Year’s celebrations to reflect on how a busy 2015 has put the company on a strong footing to significantly enhance its presence within India’s construction market during 2016.
It’s been a fascinating year here at Flowcrete India, as the business has grown in leaps and bounds! This is evident in the expanding presence that the company has achieved within the nation’s construction sector and it’s also exemplified in the large projects with blue chip companies that we’ve been involved with.
An important aspect of 2015 was the collaborative business strategy that we embraced with fellow RPM International Inc. subsidiary Euclid Chemical in order to introduce a wider range of construction chemicals to the nation’s market.
This strategy was evident at our special New Year luncheon, as several new faces were at the table thanks to a number of new appointments that will be tasked with increasing the sales and technical capabilities of Euclid Chemical’s business in key regions of the country. Several of these fresh additions to the Flowcrete India team will also be involved with setting up a new line of machines and a state-of-the-art laboratory at our existing manufacturing facility. This new approach has already led to some significant success, with projects in the pipeline and the establishment of a strong distribution network for Euclid in India.
Thanks to these developments we’ve had to move our Mumbai office to a location with more space and a new 21,600 sq. ft. warehouse in Chennai was opened close to the Flowcrete India factory to improve our logistical capabilities and to reduce lead times. Both of these milestones are a testament to the strength of our brand, our dedication to customers and the strong reputation that we enjoy with applicators and specifiers.
The New Year luncheon was the ideal opportunity for us to celebrate the many new bonds that had been developed over the year. Laughter filled the restaurant as funny stories were exchanged or amusing memories were recalled, while plans were conversed for future growth by the management team. This pleasant break meant that the Flowcrete India team were ready to launch 2016 with a positive energy!
