Fonterra Milk Processing Plant

Ucrete DP – Choice for New Zealand Milk Processor

Location:  Takanini, Auckland
                  Reporoa, Waikato

Project completed: 2011

Applicator/contractor: Topcoat Specialist Coatings Limited

Market sector: Flooring

Products used:

  • Ucrete DP

Located in Takanini, Auckland and Reporoa, Waikato, the plants are owned by global leader in dairy nutrition, Fonterra Co-operative Group. One of the top ten dairy companies in the world, Fonterra collects over 14 billion liters of milk a year from New Zealand farms and sells more than 2.3 million tons of product to customers in more than 140 countries across the globe.

The combination of heavy traffic (both foot and equipment) and harsh operating conditions, combined with the strict hygiene standards and punishing cleaning regime, requires a floor which is extremely hard wearing; resistant to a wide range of materials; able to withstand constant temperature cycling; easy to clean; and has a safe, slip-resistant surface.

The first of the new Ucrete DP floors was laid in a newly expanded processing area at Fonterra’s Yoghurt, Cheese and UHT plant in Takanini, whilst the second floor was included as part of the refurbishment works in one of the Takanini plant’s packaging areas.
