Our History

Welcome to the world of Flowcrete where creativity and innovation go hand in hand to deliver world class flooring solutions...

Flowcrete has been dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in flooring for over 30 years, in these years Flowcrete has grown from 2 staff in the UK to over 200 staff in 33 offices around the world.

In 2003 Flowcrete entered the South African market with the creation of Flowcrete SA (PTY) Ltd with a sales office and manufacturing facility.

A few years later in 2006 Flowcrete South Africa acquired Ivory Industries (Pty) Ltd - a local synthetic system manufacturer.

The company then went on to gain international recognition for providing extremely durable and resistant synthetic resin systems for corrosion and abrasion protection in the industrial environments.

Flowcrete South Africa  has 2 manufacturing facilities in Durban and Johannesburg with 3 sales offices in Durban, Johannesburg and Cape Town.

Flowcrete South Africa expanded in the Western Cape in 2013 to open a warehouse facility as well.

Flowcrete South Africa has been exporting into Kenya since 2009 and decided to setup an official business in the region to better service the East African Community. Flowcrete East Africa began operating out of Nairobi, Kenya on the 1st January 2016.

However the history of this product begins in the UK where it was invented by British born Peter Gibbon and his daughter Dawn. They developed a special type of flooring that would stop sugar eating into the floors of a Confectionery Production plant, this development then turned into Flowcrete that same year and started out in a small manufacturing unit located in the heart of Cheshire.

In 1984 they secured their first major project for NATO and their success further cemented a few years later when awarded their first Department of Trade & Industry award for innovation.

By 1990 Flowcrete was joined by a dynamic entrepreneur - Mark Greaves who was to go on to lead the company and still remains at the helm of the business operations today.

In the early 90's Flowcrete launched its polyurethane flooring systems to the food and beverage industry promoting its waterproof car park deck coating and developed its water based flooring technologies, securing a patent for its deep penetrating hardening system.

In 1995 world domination began with the acquisition of Isocrete Floor Screeds, Gyvlon Floor Screeds, Chryso UK and Beaver Anchorlyle.

And so the business continues to grow and develop across the globe.
