With a history of specialising in quality confectionery, Crest Chocolates of Brisbane wanted a high specification flooring finish to match the rest of its high-tech facility.
Significant capital investment had been made to install sophisticated processing, packaging and wrapping equipment, enabling the firm to export its produce to a wide network of local and international markets including Japan.
Among the criteria was that the new floor must comply with Crest Chocolates’ HACCAP quality assurance accreditation.
Flowcrete Australia recommended its seamless Flowcoat system with non-slip finish, which was installed in the main processing areas.
The solvent-free Flowcoat system is hard-wearing and offers good chemical resistant properties, making it suitable for use in processing environments.
According to Alan Davis, Managing Director of Crest, the floor is delivering positive results. “We find that the seamless finish is easier to maintain. We can complete wash downs more quickly due to reduced surface retention of the water.”
Flowcrete Australia’s contractor Remedial Building Services was able to carry out the project within the client’s required timeframe, ensuring minimum disruption to production.
