New techniques, particularly in the world of construction, take a lot of time to penetrate new markets. This we face at Peikko all too often – our teams are totally frustrated when simple new innovations are not taken into use, however logical they might be.
On example where this happened in a very nice way is a recent project in Turkey we did for a large Turkish retailer. Like in many countries the retailer had had problems with the concrete floors, particularly in its warehouses. With a consultation of Peikko Turkey a flooring solution was designed for the new distribution center and the end result was very good. The investor specified the flooring, the general constructor supported the use of a new product and the flooring company responsible for the work did a excellent work – considering the fact that they used the products first time.
