About CoGri USA Inc
CoGri USA inc are experts in the enhancement and testing of floors in both new and existing VNA/narrow aisle warehouse units, distribution centers, manufacturing facilities, and industrial floors.
CoGri USA is part of a global consortium that is passionate about industrial and warehouse flooring. The CoGri Group was first established in 1989 as a small manual floor grinding company, operating single-headed, trolley-mounted grinding machines. In the early 1990's, Mr. Kevin Dare invented the patented Laser Grinder ® to provide a better system of grinding floors superflat in operational warehouse aisles, with minimum disruption to on-going warehouse operation. At the same time, his interest in floor flatness also led him to invest in the development of the FACE Digital Equipment, used to measure floor profiles. Subsequently, this led to the formation of Face Consultants Ltd; an independent testing organization and experts in the measurement and control of industrial concrete floors.
Today, the CoGri Group has grown from strength to strength, from its humble beginning to a multinational organization, with representation worldwide operating from their main offices in... the United Kingdom, Australia, China, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, United States of America, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), as well as working with partners and agents across all continents. In Asia, the CoGri Group is one of the leading floor contractors operating in the region and has a large share of the specialist industrial floor construction market.
Our Philosophy and Mission:
Our philosophy is that the warehouse floor is the most critical element of a building envelope as it affects the speed, safety and efficiency of the materials handling equipment that runs on it. Depending on the floor usage, it is essential that the correct approach is applied in terms of design, construction and maintenance to ensure the floor is fit for purpose.
Our mission is to provide and offer the latest solutions and technologies to clients, helping them to maximize their warehouse floor efficiently.
What we do:
CoGri USA focuses on 3 major areas of testing. CoGri USA defines these areas as surveying, grinding, and repairing of industrial and warehouse flooring.
Surveying involves measuring concrete floors to set specifications depending upon the clients needs. For example, VNA or very narrow aisles require a Fmin survey to measure the concrete. The higher the racking, the flatter the floor must be. CoGri USA has also been involved with measuring concrete floors before a robotics system is put into place. Once the survey is complete a detailed report with graphical representation of the floor is given to the client for review. This report will enable the client to make an educated decision concerning their concrete floor.
Grinding is just as it sounds, but not as easy. After surveying concrete floors to the proper specification and the report has been generated, the client will then make an informed decision on whether to grind or not.
Our grinding machines for VNA are patented and manufactured by the CoGri Group for specific use of its offices only. These grinding machines have cutting edge technology and are constantly evolving. This allows us to grind a floor to a very tight or flat tolerance to ensure our customers receive a VNA (very narrow aisle) area that is safe and will generate the highest level of productivity.
Floor repairs is the third division of CoGri USA. Floor can include a myriad of different repairs. The repairing construction and saw joints that have been damaged to years of lift truck traffic is usually the first thing that comes to mind. Floor repairs can also include resealing of joints, removing and replacing damaged concrete, as well as addressing load transfer issues with in the slab panels.
We understand the principles behind a good quality floor whether it concerns new floors, floor repairs or floor upgrades. We have a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise which complement our understanding of the modern warehouse operation to provide the best solution that meets clients’ individual needs.
