With over 72 years in business and more than $50 million annual sales, Tichon Sea Food Corp of New Bedford, MA, is one of New England’s oldest and most successful seafood wholesalers. Although the building was sound, decades of exposure to salt water fish waste, and harsh New England winters was causing the flooring surfaces to badly deteriorate. Inclusions, fissures, pits, holes, and cracks created potential harbor for listeria and bacteria to form in the concrete. Although meticulous cleaning and maintenance were a daily routine, the facility was approaching risk for future inspections. Pristine Surfaces was asked to design a flooring solution that would be bacteria resistant, rugged enough to withstand forklift traffic, easy to clean and maintain, and able to withstand extreme environmental conditions.
