For many businesses, it may seem natural to focus far more on the floor plan for a manufacturing facility than on the floor itself. However, this is a mistake, and sometimes a costly one. A clean and smooth floor is a functional floor. A surface that does not hold up to the workload or is not properly maintained is dangerous and reduces efficiency. When a company constructs a new manufacturing facility, it is imperative to choose the right floor for the space’s needs. It is equally essential that the company put policies in place to ensure the floor is cared for and maintained.
