During their orientation visit to Europe, South Korean Fiore Bakery hoped to find inspiration and ideas and to meet suppliers for their new construction plans. It was in that context that the delegation visited the head office, laboratories and production facilities of Bolidt in Hendrik-Ido-Ambacht. The concept of this Dutch family-owned company and the long service life of their flooring systems, led Fiore Bakery to opt for Bolidt.
Fiore Bakery is a South Korean industrial bakery whose mission is for their production process to maximise both quality and productivity. That is why Fiore invests in the very best equipment for their production facilities, and that obviously also includes their new-build bakery.
As with many other bakery clients, the key factor in the decision-making process is production and business continuity. Annually halting production for long periods to allow floor maintenance and repairs was no longer an option for Fiore Bakery, from either a continuity or a cost perspective. In choosing Bolidt flooring, Fiore Bakery are clearly choosing for the future.
During the talks with Bolidt the South-Korean customer welcomed the approach outlined by Bolidt. Fiore Bakery were especially appreciative of the fact that Bolidt controls the entire process. From design and production to application, by their own specialised application teams, thus guaranteeing a consistent quality anywhere in the world.
Hygiene and safety are vital keys for modern industrial bakeries the world over. This applies not only to day-to-day manufacturing processes but also to the choice of flooring systems. Floors play a significant part in hygiene and safety.
Bolidt can replace traditional materials used in bakery environments, such as tiles and concrete, for synthetic ones. In this case, Fiore Bakery opted for the Bolidtop® 700 system. This flooring system is both safe, thanks to its slip-resistant surface, and hygienic thanks to its seamless character, which makes it very easy to clean. The drains and skirting were also seamlessly integrated to aid cleaning.
The high level of mutual commitment ensured a pleasant collaboration between the Fiore and Bolidt project teams during the eleven-day application in South Korea. The project was completed within the agreed time schedule and the factory started up successfully!Request a brochure
