AFS support Abbott on their mission for healthier lives in Ireland


Following previous successful installations in Sligo and Castlebar, IDA Ireland engaged with Advanced Flooring Systems (AFS) once more to install another high-build and smooth finish flooring system in a new unit in Sligo for their anchor tenant Abbott.

IDA Ireland is the agency responsible for the attraction and development of foreign direct investment (FDI) in Ireland. To help support further investment in the west of the country, the government agency has built a new state of the art Advance Technology buildings in Castlebar and Sligo.

This recent installation comes on a further new unit being built in Sligo, which has been secured by Abbott – a global provider of a diverse range of science-based nutritional products, diagnostic tools and medical devices who has been dedicated to helping people in Ireland live healthier lives.

Working with the main contractor Sammon Group, AFS started the project using their in-house surface preparation division to prepare the new concrete substrates.

Following preparation, AFS supplied and installed 2 coats of MPM FU Rapid (a liquid DPM due to the high moisture content in freshly poured concrete slab) and finished the project by successfully installing 2 coats of MPM P5/4 a high build epoxy flooring system, along with new matching coving.
