Twintec Industrial Flooring and Llevell Laser Floors have formed a strategic partnership for the design and construction of industrial concrete flooring throughout South Africa.


The Twintec Group are recognised world leaders in steel fibre reinforced concrete (SFRC) ‘jointless’ floor slabs design and construct in excess of 6 million m2 worldwide each year and introduced the technology to the South African market in 2010.  

Llevell Laser Floors,which operates as a division of NMC, has been laying concrete floors throughout South Africa since 1992 and have an extensive track record in delivering quality for their clients. 

Martin Kerrigan, Twintec Projects Director states “This partnership will synergise the resources of both companies with the ultimate benefits being passed directly to the customer including technical support, programme planning and added value services.  Twintec entered the market with a corporate commitment to embracing local labour skills and this provides a perfect opportunity to take this step”.

This strategic partnership will see Twintec and Llevell Laser Floors continuing to operate as independent companies, maintaining their respective track records, but working together on selected appropriate projects.  

“The combination of expertise, skilled resources  and additional opportunities for value engineering is an exciting prospect for all involved.  Embracing a spirit of building trust, the key to our success lies in quality delivery through partnering with the client and project engineers from pre-contract meetings through to the completed floor” added Stephen Chambers, Llevell Laser Floors Director.
