What Is Acrylicon?
During the mid-seventies, several studies showed that nearly everybody within manufacturing industries had the same requirements for a good flooring solution; it would have to be hygienic, easy to clean, aesthetically pleasing, slip resistant and of course, long lasting.
Off the back of these studies, Acrylicon founder and current CEO, Bjørn Hegstad, started his research into how to create a resin flooring system which would meet all of these requirements. In 1977, after several years of research, development and trials, the Acrylicon Decor System was born. It was created out of a need within the Norwegian food sector, especially the fish industry, for hard wearing floors that stood up under the stresses and strains of processing.
By identifying the best generic properties in the raw materials, he and his team were able to develop a system which combined two important qualities of a flooring solution; a fast curing time, with high compressive strength. Acrylicon began developing further floor systems that not only met the needs of each client, but exceeded them.
Our International Expansion
Since the invention and our 1977 beginnings, the company has become a reputable manufacturer and installer of flooring solutions. In today’s fast-paced world many of the flooring requirements Acrylicon set out to solve remain the same. Therefore, our focus and our mission are still to give the world flooring solutions which last longer and stand the test of time.
Various businesses, from local commercial kitchens to multi-national soft drink’s manufacturers, have experienced the advantages of installing one of our flooring systems first hand. Acrylicon was taken internationally in the mid 90’s when several multi-national clients wanted the same standard of flooring across all their worldwide facilities. Due to the continued worldwide demand, offices were set up in the UK, Canada, America, Egypt and The Middle East. To this day, Acrylicon continue to provide many of our original international clients with flooring solutions, for refurbishing projects and newly constructed facilities.
The creation of our modern production facility in Germany cemented our worldwide reputation. From this state-of-the-art facility, we undertake further high-quality research within development laboratories, and uphold an exceptional level of quality control. Acrylicon has grown into an international company with many prestigious installations to our name. Today we continue to expand across the world; wherever clients require solutions to their flooring problems, we will be there.
