Geofabrics Australasia Pty Ltd (Geofabrics), the Australasian leader in geosynthetics, today entered into a distributor agreement with Concrete Canvas Ltd (Concrete Canvas), the inventors of the innovative Concrete Canvas® Geosynthetic Cementitious Composite Mat (GCCM).
The agreement, which was signed in Melbourne today by Will Crawford, Director of Concrete Canvas, and Brendan Swifte and Dennis Grech, Directors of Geofabrics Australasia, comes into effect on 25 March 2017 and grants exclusive rights to Geofabrics to distribute Concrete Canvas® in both Australia and New Zealand.
UK based Concrete Canvas Ltd began manufacturing their innovative GCCMs in 2005. Concrete Canvas® is a flexible concrete impregnated fabric that hardens on hydration to form a thin, durable water proof and fire-resistant concrete layer.
Due to the versatility of Concrete Canvas®, its speed of installation and low logistical footprint the demand for the product continues to grow worldwide. In 2016 alone, they made sales to over 50 countries. Concrete Canvas® has several core applications, with the Australian market being focussed to date on bund linings in the petrochemical sector. Other applications include, but are not limited to, channel lining, slope protection, weed suppression and remediation of existing concrete structures.
‘We look forward to establishing a long term co-operative effort, which will involve sales, marketing and R&D with Geofabrics Australasia, who are market leaders in geosynthetic sales and manufacturing for the Oceania Region’, said Will Crawford.
The new agreement between Geofabrics and Concrete Canvas is based upon a mutual desire to develop and market innovative geosynthetic products for the civil and infrastructure sectors.
