IFT offers Integrated Flooring Solutions
Leading specialist flooring company, Industrial Floor Treatments Ltd, has undergone significant changes within the business and has recently rebranded as IFT-Integrated Flooring Technologies.
The company, which now provides integrated flooring solutions, was established in 1985 and employs 45 staff from offices in East Kilbride and Bishop Auckland. 2016 has been another successful year for the business, with turnover increasing 20% over the past two years. In order to remain competitive within the marketplace, IFT has evolved considerably from just industrial flooring and now provides clients with a variety of services including floor screeds and leveling, resin flooring, food safe flooring, car park decking systems, raised access flooring, underfloor heating and hygienic wall cladding.
Managing Director Greg Love comments: “The marketplace is still competitive, however despite Brexit, confidence across Scotland’s construction industry appears to be on the increase and IFT has evolved to provide additional services to clients so that contractors no longer need to look outside Scotland to service their requirements. We are looking to develop our local workforce over the next 12 months, from apprentices to experienced floor installers, in order to keep up with demand.
There are a number of high profile projects across Scotland in development and the key focus of main contractors appears to be on quality of supply. There is a clear need in the market for large office space as outdated office accommodation in the major commercial centres is refurbished or replaced. We are also seeing a spike in enquiries from the end-user market, in particular for those businesses involved in exporting.”
IFT is recognised throughout the industry for its Quality of Service and rigorous Health & Safety and Environmental systems. The company works with a number of industrial and commercial clients throughout Scotland and the North of England including Balfour Beatty, Laing O’Rourke, Sir Robert McAlpine and Diageo, and has recently worked on high profile projects such the Woods Groups new head offices at City Park Aberdeen where they installed the car park decking system and raised access flooring, and the Kelvin Hall refurbishment project where IFT were the flooring contractor appointed to install both the screeding and resin flooring on this historic and much loved Glasgow venue transformed into an exciting new centre of cultural excellence.
