- Mahroz Ibrahim Khan appointed as Flowcrete Asia’s new Pakistan Sales Manager.

Flowcrete Asia has enhanced its ability to supply the Pakistani construction industry with high quality resin flooring solutions by appointing a new Sales Manager to the country.
Over the past ten years Flowcrete Asia has successfully built up an extensive reference list of over 70 projects in Pakistan. Recently, this included being appointed by Volka Food International to supply over 20,000 m2 of ultra-hygienic flooring to one of the country’s biggest F&B projects.
Flowcrete Asia is experiencing increasing levels of demand thanks in large part to its well established reputation combined with the rapid growth of the industrial sector, which is expected to grow 7.7% during the 2016-2017 fiscal year alone.
As Pakistan’s major industries grow, it is important for them to be supported by state-of-the-art building materials that provide functional, budgetary and longevity advantages. This is especially true of the floor within industrial facilities, as in general this aspect of a building’s design is coming under increasing pressure due to factories becoming ever larger, more intensive and more specialised.
Sectors such as the food & beverage and pharmaceutical industries need to be able to maintain a hygienic working environment for an extended period of time. Should the floor finish fail then contaminants will start to build up in hard to clean cracks, exposing the facility to unsanitary conditions.
Today, Pakistan’s food exports generate over US$3,500 million – up from US$777 million in 2000. The scale of the nation’s food industry means it is vital that producers meet the strict regulatory criteria of international consumers and foreign authorities - as failing to do so could result in being prevented from selling produce abroad.
Mahroz Ibrahim Khan, Flowcrete Asia’s new Pakistan Sales Manager is ideally placed to recommend high performance flooring solutions suitable for the food industry. This includes Flowfresh, Flowcrete’s range of antimicrobial enhanced polyurethane floors, which has been utilised by some of the world’s most demanding food and beverage facilities.
Flowfresh has been HACCP International certified thanks to its ability to maintain a clean and uncontaminated finish. This means that businesses implementing a HACCP Food Safety Program can rest assured that a Flowfresh floor will meet the high standards of the internationally recognised HACCP guidelines. To further enhance on-site hygiene levels, every Flowfresh finish incorporates the antimicrobial additive Polygiene®, which is able to eliminate up to 99.9% of bacteria in contact with the floor.
Similarly, Pakistan’s pharmaceutical industry, the sixth largest in the world, needs to be able to create effective cleanrooms in order to safeguard the integrity of the working processes and the produce. Flowcrete Asia has a wealth of experience supplying contamination sensitive industries such as the pharmaceutical sector with its Cleanroom Suitable Material (CSM) qualified products, Flowshield SL floor finish and Flowseal EPW Wall.
Architects, consultants and contractors in Pakistan can now also source Euclid Chemical’s wide range of construction chemical solutions from Flowcrete Asia’s representatives.
