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 testing organisation 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 organisation, with representation worldwide operating from their main offices in the United Kingdom, USA , Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, South Korea, Japan, the United Arab Emirates (UAE), Africa, Poland, as well as working with partners and agents across the continents.
The CoGri Group plays a vital role in the industrial flooring industry as members of board of governors of the UK’s Association of Concrete Industrial Flooring Contractors (ACIFC) and is on the working party of the latest edition of the Concrete Society’s Technical Report 34, a guide to design and construction of concrete industrial ground floors, being instrumental in developing the flatness specifications within this standard.
The Group has also given advice to working parties of UK, European and ISO standards on matters of floor surface regularity. The Group is a member of The Concrete Society, the British Standards Institute (BSI), the UK Material Handling Association (UKMHA) and the UK Warehouse Association (UKWA).
