Alfix industrial looking floors in social housing associations

In Denmark’s many social housing associations, Alfix design or industrial-looking flooring system may turn a popular choice in terms of practical and wear resistant floorings.

In this housing association in Aalborg, the Alfix system used pleases both the property manager as well as the residents.

The system contains of 3 layers in all: Initially, a slurry contact coat of Alfix PlaneMix 50 levelling compound and PlaneMix Primer. Followed by a levelling layer of PlaneMix 50 and finally, the application of Alfix TopCoat Design, which will close the surface with a matt, transparent and protective finish.

The owner really appreciates the result when interviewed a year after completion of the new flooring.
The basement floor is much easier to vacuum and clean compared to the previous rough and porous concrete floor.

The property management has thus been saved for many hours of extra work. And added to this, the Alfix industrial flooring appears friendlier and brighter – a considerable lift in terms of function and design to the daily delight of the many users of the basement facilities.

Invitation – join the green transition

Alfix has boosted its sustainable initiatives and invites builders’ merchants, craftsmen and other players within the building trade to join the journey.

As from 1. December 2020, Alfix switched to eco-friendly biomethane for the operation of the factory in Kolding. A deliberate choice which will entail a significant 10% reduction in the total CO2 emission of the plant. About the latest green initiative, Anders Bertelsen Toft (CCO) elaborates:

“The transition to biomethane is the latest initiative in our long-term sustainable strategy. Biomethane is a climate friendly and CO2 neutral energy source produced from organic fertilizer and organic household waste, a.o. The green Alfix strategy also includes the implementation of an extensive waste segregation and the use of 100% green power, which exclusively has been generated from renewable and CO2 neutral energy”.

EPDs, DGNB and the Nordic Eco-label
Today, Alfix has launched Environmental Product Declarations (EDP) for more than 60 products, and the majority of these products comply with an overall sustainable profile enabling use for eco-labeled and DGNB certified building projects. The demand for certified green systems has seen a significant rise within the last couple of years, and this market tendency seems to continue.

”Our sustainable initiatives come straight from the heart – the right and only thing to do as a manufacturer of building materials. Fortunately, our customers approve of the transition and consider a co-operation with Alfix a possibility to turn green. Together, we can make a difference. We are, hence, very pleased to learn that many merchants, specifiers, craftsmen and end users now have acknowledged the importance of sustainable construction”, Anders Bertelsen Toft says.

The Alfix slogan is Responsible Strength, and the company vision is to create assurance for its customers. A long-standing and lasting slogan and vision. For that reason and as a locally founded Danish manufacturer, Alfix should be at the forefront when it comes to responsible building, obviously.
”We owe it to society in general and to future generations in particular” the CCO concludes.

North Jutland: Corona year with Alfix lectures on Teams

Lars Brix is the sales consultant for Alfix in Mid- and North Jutland where he has serviced merchants and craftsmen at building sites for more than two decades.

We have asked the experienced Alfix employee (skilled bricklayer and tile fixer) about his working life during the corona pandemic:

How would you briefly describe the last year in terms of work?
When corona hit the country in March last year, everybody in the building trade got extremely busy. We got many calls from our builders' merchant customers as many of their customers were sent home, and luckily many of the home send chose to renovate and refurbish their homes, which gave us a lot of work. The retailers introduced several understandable restrictions, and these restrictions prevented us from visiting them – they focused on their own customers. And hence, work routines changed for us suppliers. We visited and still visit building sites as often as possible and requested, just as we are at disposal when projects should be facilitated or commenced.

Which part of your job has been the most difficult?
Definitely that it has been impossible to visit our many good customers and thereby uphold daily talks and maintain relations. I miss the close and regular contact with the customers.

Which part would you describe as being positive?
That many tasks can be solved by phone or pc. Teams meetings will become a natural part of work life, I think. Much can be discussed and decided effectively during a couple of on-line hours and so eliminate the need for internal meetings involving a long drive to the company premises in Kolding.

Could you suggest any corona-conditioned changes that you would like to uphold when work life hopefully turn more normal at some future time?
Definitely Teams meetings. I have been teaching vocational schools over Teams and in spite of my limited IT-means, on-line lecturing has been a success beyond expectation. But I would, nevertheless, prefer to meet with customers and craftsmen face-to-face as soon as possible. Physical appearance adds a dynamic dimension.

What do you look forward to with a view to the trade and your work for Alfix?
Denmark re-opening! I look forward to the returning of daily life so that I may again visit customers – see my many colleagues – and uphold and expand the contact to our builders' merchants and craftsmen.

Alfix wins impressive business award!

On Monday 29 October, Alfix won a theme prize at the Owner Leader of the Year 2018 awards ceremony in southern Jutland.

The awards ceremony, which is sponsored by PwC, the Danish Chamber of Commerce and Nykredit, took place at PwC’s offices in Vejle. Here, the choice of winner fell on Alfix A/S, a family-owned company that has been developing, manufacturing and marketing products for the Nordic building industry since 1963.

“We’re obviously proud and delighted with this prestigious award as a regional winner of the ‘Confidence’ theme award, and we’re very grateful that the nomination committee chose us,” say both Torben Carstensen Toft and Anders Bertelsen Toft – owner leaders at Alfix.

The fact that their long-standing work with values such as trustworthiness (confidence) and responsibility has been noticed outside the company is particularly satisfying for the owners, as the values play a key role for the Kolding-based company’s business foundation.

“In our view, it’s all down to our experienced, competent and loyal employees that we in Kolding have been chosen for the award. Without their hard work, commitment and expertise, Alfix simply wouldn’t exist,” add Torben and Anders.

According to the Alfix owners, warm thanks are also due to the professional business partners such as their suppliers, customers, end-users and others who have kept Alfix going for more than 55 years. Long-term relationships based on trust throughout the value chain are vital for the sustainability of the company.
The award comes with a place in the national finals which will be held on 8 November 2018 in Copenhagen. Here, Alfix is up against an exciting field of theme award-winners from all seven regions in Denmark.

January 2016

Alfix has once again been nominated for the Danish Building Industry’s Environment Award

In 2012 Alfix was Winner of Danish Building Industry’s Environment Award presented by His Royal Highness Crown Prince Frederik. Alfix is now nominated for the Environment Award 2016.

Nomination is on the grounds of a new sustainable tile adhesive - Alfix QuickFix premium. The new green Alfix tile adhesive will see its market introduction at the coming leading Danish construction trade fair, Byggeri ’16, which opens in Fredericia on 1st March 2016.

Alfix QuickFix premium is a high-quality, rapid-setting natural stone adhesive containing re-used rawmaterial in the form of recycled, crushed glass from old bottles and delivered in sustainable FSC-certified paper bags. Paper used for the bags originates from responsible and well-managed forests only.

In terms of working environmental considerations, the Alfix adhesive also offers a number of advantages. Due to the addition of light fillers, both mixing and fixing are made with less effort, and the light fillers ensure a good workability as the mixture will feel less viscous and weigh less on the fixer’s trowel. The use of light fillers also extends the coverage of Alfix QuickFix premium with up to 20% since the yield of a 20 kg bag corresponds to 25 kg of a conventional tile adhesive. Extended coverage will further reduce the negative influence from CO2 release caused by transport due to an overall reduction in total weight.

Finally, the new Alfix tile adhesive holds by far the lowest emission witin its class and hence, causes no health damaging impact on indoor climate.

Experience Alfix QuickFix premium at our stand no D-6320 during BYGGERI´16 as from 1st March 2015 09.30 am
