Transforming Volvo’s Prototype Workshop: a Resin Flooring Project Success Story

Project Details:

  • Client: Volvo Prototype Workshop
  • Location: Motherwell

Years ago, a strategic cold call from our Resin Divisional Lead, Jay
Livingstone, laid the foundation for a long-standing relationship with Volvo.

The Project

Today, that initial outreach has evolved into a partnership of trust and excellence as we manage their flooring needs.

The most recent project brought us to their Prototype workshop, home to the cutting-edge RA30 truck, a 9.3Ltr engineering marvel designed and built in Scotland and sold globally.

The Challenges

Oil contamination posed a unique challenge to the workshop slab, requiring us to use specialised solutions.

The Process

With the expertise of our crew, we tackled the project as follows:

  1. Grind preparation to remove existing coatings.
  2. Application of Oil Tolerant primer to combat slab contamination.
  3. Fill and repair remedial damage.
  4. 1st coat of high-build coating with slip resistance.
  5. 2nd coat of high-build coating.
  6. Demarcation.
  7. Joints.

    The Result

    We accomplished all this without compromising the standards that Volvo expects from us.

    In just eight days, we transformed the workshop floor into a resilient and practical surface that met Volvo’s high standards.

    The crew’s hard work didn’t go unnoticed; the client remarked:

    “They have never seen a flooring crew work so hard. We are all delighted with the result!”

    As always, a massive shoutout to our team for their commitment to quality and efficiency.
