International flooring specialist company, Flowcrete Australia , recently expanded its presence in South East Asia with the launch of a sales and technical support office in Indonesia.  

The expansion comes after recent flooring projects for multinational companies such as GlaxoSmithKline, L’Oreal, Unilever, Frisian Flag and Charoen Pokphand were successfully carried out.  

Fabian Paimanta, formerly Business Manager at BASF, has been appointed Country Manager. Sudarman Patmoharjo will join him to provide technical site support. Both have extensive experience in the flooring sector with specialist knowledge of resin flooring products.  

“This is a significant step forward in the expansion of our regional network and will enable us to better service our customers in this important market. Having technical staff on the ground also means we will be able to provide site support to our approved applicators in the area,” says Flowcrete Asia’s Director of Sales Desmond Sin.  

Flowcrete Indonesia will focus initially on flooring for the food and beverage, pharmaceutical and automotive sectors where Flowcrete’s range of resin flooring systems cater to multiple applications.  

These include Deckshield resin flooring, developed specifically for car park coating, Flowfresh with integrated antimicrobial for areas requiring the extremely high levels of hygiene, and Flowfast for fast-track refurbishment work.  

Deckshield slip resistant surface is available in different formulations for exposed decks, intermediate decks and ramps, and has been accredited with Singapore’s Green Label in the Environmentally Friendly/Low VOC Paints Category.  

Lighting levels are improved through Deckshield’s reflective components, enhancing the overall safety and ambience the car park.  

With the rapid-cure Flowfast system, flooring can be ready to receive traffic just two hours after application, benefiting large areas that need to be installed quickly and enabling environments to be transformed overnight.  

"Specifiers are moving up the value chain as owners and developers look for sustainable finishes for their projects. Our seamless flooring systems offer high performance characteristics with eco-friendly properties and pleasing aesthetics," adds Mr Sin.
