About this Project

With a large amount of equipment waiting to be installed in their new canning and pasteurising area, Frucor Beverages was working to a precise deadline. That’s why they chose to work with the expert team at Topcoat Specialist Coatings – and a revolutionary quick-curing concrete system – that saw the job roll out exactly to schedule, on time and on budget.


After recommendations from Topcoat, Frucor decided to invest in the Ucrete MF 4mm system. As part of the selection process, Frucor had also visited the new Lion Breweries site in East Tamaki. During the massive building project over the last two years, Topcoat Specialist Coatings has installed approximately 8,000m2 of Ucrete DP6 at the new brewery. Frucor’s new floor also has a non-slip surface to meet health & safety requirements, and a minimum of control joints to minimise contamination and unsightly joints, ensuring a seamless finish.


With the tight time-frame on this project, Topcoat’s responsiveness of service was a key asset. In fact the Topcoat team not only worked to schedule – they worked ahead of schedule. They shortened their time frame, used their large labour force and managed to gain one week, allowing Frucor access to the floor earlier than expected.

The thing that was notable about this job was that everything happened quite smoothly – and the Topcoat team was really good to work with. Topcoat worked well with everyone, including their sub-contractors, to fine-tune the solution as they went.
