The CoGri Group global consortium 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 1990s, 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 UKAS accredited testing organisation and experts in the measurement and control of industrial concrete floors.
