About

Excellence in all areas of service, safety and cost-efficiency

Established in 1985 by James Love, IFT has been built from a strong and continued family heritage. Formerly known as Industrial Floor Treatments, the company has now further developed it’s service range to become Integrated Flooring Technologies. Employing 45 staff from offices in East Kilbride and Bishop Auckland, IFT has over 30 years experience working throughout Scotland and the North of England.

From Floor Screed and Resin Flooring, to Food Safe Flooring, Car Park Decking Systems, Raised Access Flooring, Underfloor Heating, and Hygienic Wall Cladding, we provide a complete in-situ integrated flooring package.

The services we can provide involve the assistance at the early stages of a project to ensure that the correct and most appropriate systems are specified, through to the hands-on management of the installation process to ensure successful completion. It is the high level of experience of our Technical Departments and Contracts Managers, underpinned by the quality and skill of our operatives, that ensures that the client receives the floor they need.

We employ all our own skilled operatives and continue to ensure that they are suitably trained for the work they undertake. Health & Safety, Quality and the Environment remain central to the performance of the business.

IFT is a company based on providing a high quality and pro-active service to all of its clients. It is this service that has seen the main contractors, through to individual clients, continue to use us on their projects. We are a company that look to remain as the premier supplier of integrated flooring solutions within this specialist field through the quality of the service we provide.

Should you wish more information on the company or wish to discuss your project in detail please do not hesitate to contact us.
